Speech therapy activities
Speech therapy helps with various communication needs, along with learning appropriate ways to socialize with peers and adults. Some problem areas that students might work on include:
Articulation skills--when showing difficulty with producing sounds in syllables or words
Fluency skills--when experiencing stuttering, where the flow of speech gets interrupted, sometimes through repetitions or prolonging of sounds and syllables
Resonance or voice skills--might be seen as problems with pitch, volume, or quality of a person's voice toward a listener, which sometimes causes pain or discomfort to the speaker
Dysphagia/oral feeding skills--which might include difficulties with chewing food or swallowing mechanisms
Language skills-- receptive skills, including understanding or processing language; expressive skills, including difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way
Occupational Therapy assists students with learning independent life skills, and creating solutions to assist students with obtaining positive outcomes.
