  • About Communication Therapy


    A public school speech-language pathologist or therapist helps children who have problems with many areas of communication.  Some of which are:

    • articulation or phonological problems (incorrect production of speech sounds)
    • Language problems (reduced ability to understand or express ideas through spoken or gestured language.  The language errors may be characterized by limited vocabulary, word usage errors, using faulty grammatical patterns or sentence structure and/or social-functional language problems)
    • voice disorders (abnormal production or absence of vocal quality, pitch, loudness, or duration which is not appropriate for the student's age or gender)
    • fluency disorders (interruptions in the flow of speaking, not using a typical rate, repeating or prolonging sounds, words, phrases when speaking
    • augmentative communication (communication boards, picture symbols, etc.)
