Licensed Speech and Language Pathologists work with caregivers to help with their child’s communication skills. They assist children who show significant language delays or children who are having difficulty producing speech sounds and words. A speech therapist may also work with children who have oral-motor or feeding issues. They can help with the coordination of breathing, chewing, and swallowing. An SLP can work with caregivers to transition their child from tube-feedings to oral feedings.
