What can speech therapy look like?
Speech therapists employ a variety of methods and techniques to help develop a child’s communication skills. The speech therapist will usually conduct an initial assessment to gain a better understanding of the child’s specific deficits.
Therapy with children often involves using play-like approaches to maintain attention and motivation, and ongoing practice of techniques is usually essential. The therapy style used depends on the nature of the child’s condition. Some examples include:
- Developing mouth, throat and tongue muscles by using objects (e.g. paddle pop sticks, straws) or facial massage
- Repeatedly making particular sounds for dyspraxia issues
- Using foods and objects of different textures to improve awareness and coordination
- Exercises to enhance muscle movement in swallowing problems
- Developing phonological awareness skills by doing rhyming or syllable exercises
