Speech therapy is intended to assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, and fluency. Teachers of Speech and Language Disabilities, SLPs teach children how to make sounds, improve their voices, how to strengthen muscles or use compensatory strategies to swallow without choking or inhaling food or liquid. They work one on one with children in schools to help improve their receptive, expresive and articulation delays.
