The Benefits of Speech Therapy
Speech therapy is beneficial for any child with difficulty speaking or understanding language. Our speech therapists provide individualized attention to each child to help them speak clearly, which in turn, helps them feel more confident and less frustrated about speaking to others. Kids who have language difficulties can benefit socially, emotionally, and academically from speech therapy. For kids with reading difficulties such as dyslexia, speech therapy targets their ability to hear and distinguish specific sounds in words, which then improves reading comprehension skills and encourages kids to read. Speech therapy is especially beneficial when kids begin early in life (ages 1-3). In one study, 70% of preschool-aged children with language difficulties who went through speech therapy showed improvement in language skills.
