Having our verbal messages understood is the basis of speech.  Likewise, making the sounds of our language clearly is crucial for communication.  Younger children may make errors in their sounds; these are normally outgrown by a specific age range. At times, these speech skills do not evolve as expected and therapy might be indicated.

Since most academic learning is language-based, children with language problems are at high risk for learning disabilities. However, early treatment of language weaknesses can frequently mitigate or even prevent life-long learning problems.  In addition to diminishing the core learning weaknesses, good therapy can also teach compensation strategies.

Parent education is a critical adjunct to any good therapy program. As a therapist, I  spend 2 or 3 hours per week with a child, but parents have the luxury of interacting  many more hours with their children.  This time-even the informal interaction time-can be used to reinforce good speech or language-learning  habits.
