What is speech therapy

Speech therapy is the evaluation and treatment of communication problems and speech disorders. It is performed by speech and language pathologists (SLPs), who are often referred to as speech therapists.
Speech therapy techniques are used to improve communication. These treatments include speech, language intervention activities, and others, depending on the type of speech or language disorder.
Speech therapy may be required for speech disorders that develop in childhood or impaired speech in adults due to an injury or illness, such as a stroke or brain injury.
