Speech-language therapy focuses on improving a child’s speech and/or a child’s abilities to understand and express language, including nonverbal language. These services are provided by a certified speech and language pathologist (SLP), also known as a speech therapist. By assessing the speech, language, and cognitive-communication skills of children, SLPs can identify a variety of communication problems and determine the best way to treat them.
