How A Speech Therapist Can Help:

How A Speech Therapist Can Help Muscle weakness Speech production requires the use of various muscles and sometimes the inability to control these muscles may cause unclear speech. For instance, your child may find it difficult to lift the tip of their tongue to produce the ‘L’ sound. Difficulties in coordination Another cause of unclear speech could be that the child has difficulties coordinating the movement to produce sounds. The same can be said of those who lack basic dancing skills. In this case, your child may be able to pronounce ‘L’ in ‘Leaf' but find it difficult to produce ‘L’ in ‘Caterpillar’. With the help of a speech therapist who is specifically trained to evaluate and proffer solutions to speech difficulties in both young and old, you can experience peace of mind. Unclear speech can cause an individual to become socially isolated from other children resulting in less peer interaction. Speech therapy can bring a feeling of ease to your daily life by improving speech, communication, language and learning skills.

These treatments may include exercises to strengthen jaw and mouth muscles, learning ways to speak slower, and learning to control breath to make the voice louder.
