Speech therapy is a type of treatment for people who struggle to speak, communicate, or swallow. It encourages the proper use of the voice as well as the use of muscles to achieve the desired sounds. As a result, it improves one's word comprehension and self-expression.
Children who have difficulty speaking and writing can benefit from speech therapy. Language impairments and reading difficulties, such as dyslexia, are taken into account.
It is administered by a speech therapist, also known as a speech-language pathologist. They start by figuring out what kind of speech or language problem a child has. They then determine what is causing the problem and determine the best course of action.
Autism, ADHD, Down syndrome, intellectual disability, global development delay, speech disorders, specific learning disabilities, and other conditions are all treated with speech therapy. Its mission is to assist children and young adults in reaching their full communication potential.
If you are not sure if online speech therapy is effective, we have a blog about it to help you understand better. You can read this blog here.

How many speech therapy sessions are required?
Therapists start with a plan based on the current conditions of your child. The number of therapy sessions required to obtain significant progress depends on various factors like:
Type and severity of the speech and language difficulty
Regular therapy attendance
Parent/ Caregiver’s involvement
Competence of the therapist
It is essential to understand these factors and be patient as the process may be lengthy. Each child is different and improvements happen at their own pace.
