The Benefits of Speech Therapy

  • BenefitsSpeechTherapySpeech therapy can help children learn to speak more clearly. This helps them feel more confident and less frustrated about speaking to others. Children who have language issues can benefit socially, emotionally and academically from speech therapy.
  • For children with reading issues such as dyslexia, speech therapy can help them hear and distinguish specific sounds in words and build, strengthen, and develop the skills necessary to become a more fluent and competent reader.  This can improve reading comprehension skills and encourage children to read.
  • Speech therapy is especially beneficial when children begin early in life. In one study, 90 percent of preschool children with language issues who went through speech therapy showed improvement in language skills.
