Speech/Language Therapy is the treatment of speech and/or language disorders, such as problems with the actual production of sounds and difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Assessment and treatment may include the areas of language (listening, talking, reading, writing), cognition (attention, memory, sequencing, planning, time management, problem solving), motor speech skills and articulation, and conversational skills. Speech/Language Therapy can also address issues related to swallowing and respiration. Individual goals for each person will depend on their level of functioning, with the overriding focus being to regain lost skills and/or learn ways to compensate for abilities that have permanently changed so as to help the individual achieve the greatest level of independence possible.
