Speech Therapy Activities
Speech Therapy Activities can be variable depending on the type of speech therapy is required & the kind of problems a therapist is dealing with.
It also depends on the patients even if the type of speech therapy is same & kind of problem is similar.
It is generally tailor-made for every individual.There’s no tailor-made activity that can describe any speech therapy session.
The best session is what is made & designed especially for a patient for a session. It may not be effective next time or even in the second session as the person moods/mind keeps changing.
Therefore, for every session, a tailor-made therapy module is charted & is created for an individual for best outcomes
Speech Therapy Benefits
There are great benefits from speech therapy for certain disorders like –, delayed speech, misarticulation, stammering, voice disorders of functional origin
There can be variable benefits or limited benefits from speech therapy for disorders of neurological origin.
Overall, there’s always benefit from speech therapy as there are no side effects. No drugs are administered in this treatment. It is purely external treatment & based on person’s psychology so if the person /family is motivated & committed enough, then is likely to derive huge benefits from speech therapy.
Many times, person or family does not have patience enough to go through entire treatment & drops it in between as it is ttime-consuming& long drawn treatment, in that case, the benefits can be limited.
Therapists mostly show the path, the person has to trek himself/herself on it. However, correct guidance is very important to get desired outcomes & benefit
Speech Therapy Classes
The Speech therapy classes vary from case to case depending on the kind of disorder & origin of disorder & also the age of the patient.
Generally, a speech therapy class for a child lasts from 30 min to an hour. A child may not have an attention span of more than that.
The speech therapy class should be a one-one session with parents fully involved. Parents should be in control of the treatment in case of a child & should be fully aware of what is happening in the class & try to be a part of it as much as possible.
The Speech therapy classroom should NOT be too BIG as a child can be distracted with as many limited things in the room to reduce distraction.
For children, the class can be colorful to attract the child.
