Speech therapy is an allied health profession dealing with speech, language and communication of an individual.
Speech therapy session is conducted by a certified (RCI registered) SPEECH and LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST.
Speech therapy for kids and adults varies. For pediatric population, it is play based. The therapist engages the child in target oriented activities/games. E.g., To make the child aware of use of object (cup), the therapist takes a cup, pours milk or juice in it and drinks himself first, then the child is made to drink. The child then makes the parent or the caregiver drink from the cup. In this manner the child enjoys while learning the concept of “use of object cup”. The therapist always chooses the activities and games that serve the target goal and are also case sensitive (game as per child’s age, gender, emotional level and needs). For adults, the therapist chooses structured interactive programs tailor made with precision to help overcome the patients disorder.
