Speech Disorder Treatments

Many speech disorders cannot be cured, but by receiving speech and language therapy with a licensed speech pathologist, many children, and adults can improve their speech or adapt to alternative communication methods.

Speech therapists can help individuals learn the correct way to make a sound, including when and how to move their mouth and tongue, practice saying certain sounds, learn to tell when a sound is correct or wrong, and use sounds in longer sentences. Speech pathologists can give children and adults exercises to improve their speech. Additionally, other medical or mental health care might be necessary depending on the type of speech disorder.

Speech disorders impact children and adults from all walks of life. But these disorders don’t have to stand in the way of their communication, education, and careers. Licensed speech pathologists can help individuals improve their speaking, and when helpful, learn to use augmentative and alternative communication methods.
