Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is aimed at helping patients with speech problems and enabling them to speak more clearly.

Patients may have impaired speech for many reasons. Some of the conditions that cause this are autism, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, central nervous system disorders and psychiatric reasons.

The techniques used are pressure alleviation with speech, singing, massage of facial muscles, nonverbal communication and psychological counseling. Devices such as sound amplifier, palatal lift and speech enhancers may also be used to aid in speech.

Speech therapies are most effective in children when they are still developing this skill. Early detection of speech impairment makes therapy more successful.
