Speech and Language Therapy refers to the work done by Speech and Language Pathologists (SLPs) with children who have difficulties involving any aspect of speech, language or communication development. This might include:
- Children who are taking longer than expected to learn to talk;
- Children with limited vocabulary, who struggle to form sentences or get their words and sentences muddled up;
- Children who find it difficult to understand what others are saying;
- Children who struggle to communicate socially with others;
- Children who struggle to say certain sounds or make themselves understood;
- Children who stammer; and
- Children who have problems with vocalisation.
