How can Speech Therapy help?
A certified speech-language pathologist (SLP) will assess your child’s communication potential using a variety of techniques/tools. Your SLP will consider your child’s language/cognitive skills, fine motor skills, vision, hearing, and positioning when making recommendations for techniques/tools that will help your child communicate. Assessment is an ongoing process that continues throughout therapy, as AAC systems need to evolve as the child’s communication abilities evolve. Therapy will help maximize effective communication between your child and his/her communication partners across the lifespan.
