Treating Cognitive Communication Disorders in Children

After children’s overall health is assessed and medical interventions are introduced, effective speech and language therapy can help children acquire numerous speech and language skills that will support them for the rest of their lives.

A dedicated speech-language pathologist will work to assess your child’s current speech development and improve the speech and language difficulties at hand. Based on your child’s verbal aptitudes and challenges, the speech therapist will construct a rehabilitation plan of activities designed to help your child master specific communication goals.

Speech therapy sessions may incorporate oral motor exercises, which can involve blowing horns to increase lip rounding and breath support, for example. SLPs may focus on building precise articulation by using mirrors and modeling of oral movements. Or they may reinforce basic communication skills through use of verbalization or augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) such as picture symbols or a communication application that could be found on a tablet.

The goal of speech therapy for children is to enable the ability to communicate and the confidence necessary to employ their new skills in the context of everyday life.
