Speech and Language Therapy Options

Birth Injuries and Speech Therapy

Children who have suffered a birth injury often have difficulty with motor skills and language development. Speech and language therapy is available to help develop the skills that a child may need to form words, read, enunciate or communicate with others.

What Is Speech and Language Therapy?

Speech and language pathologists and therapists work with children who have suffered a brain injury or other birth injury that affects speech to improve their ability to communicate. Tactics involved in therapy include phonetics, listening, reading and speaking. Therapy often includes a mix of activities and homework assignments to help improve speech skills.

Similar to occupational therapy or physical therapy, speech and language therapy sessions and activities vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury and its long-term effects. The length of therapy sessions also differs depending on the individual needs of the child.
