Who needs a Speech Language Pathologist?

Speech Language Pathologists work with both children and adults in clinics, schools, and
hospitals. Depending on the speech or language difficulties, your child’s intervention may take
place in a small group, or one-to-one. In children’s speech therapy, the SLP might: interact
through talking and playing, using books, pictures and other objects as part of language
intervention to help stimulate language development, model correct sounds and syllables for a
child during age-appropriate play to teach the child how to make certain sounds as well as
provide strategies and homework for the child and parent or caregiver on how to do speech
therapy at home.

Adult speech therapy also starts with an evaluation to identify the needs and the most appropriate
course of action. Speech therapy exercises for adults can help you with speech, language, and
cognitive communication. Exercises may involve: problem solving, memory, and other activities
geared at improving cognitive communication, conversational tactics to improve social
communication, breathing exercises for resonance, and exercises to strengthen oral muscles.
If you or a loved one experience any of the following difficulties, it might be a good idea to seek
out a speech-language pathologist.
