Pediatric Therapy FAQ's
Children are often referred to speech therapists at two or three years old. Children as old four or five may also be seen by an articulation specialist. The goal is typically for children to start using their voice correctly in school and social settings, without feeling embarrassed because they’re speaking incorrectly.
Speech therapy can help kids with sounds that have challenged them from a young age, like “k” and “g,” but it’s important not only for those; adults who want relief should consider going too!
A speech disorder happens when a child has a problem making sounds. Some of the common speech disorders include the following.
- Problems with making sounds from syllables or saying words incoherently such that no one understands them.
- Stuttering where the proper flow of speech is often interrupted with unusual stops or partial word repetitions or prolonging syllables and sounds.
- Problems with volume, pitch and the quality of the voice thereby distracting listeners from what is being said.
Note that, these types of disorders might result in discomfort or pain when your child is speaking.
Occupational Therapy refers to a branch of healthcare dedicated to helping people suffering from cognitive, sensory, and physical problems. At Sensory Solutions, our Occupational Therapists assist with barriers that might affect your child’s emotional, physical, and social needs.
Occupational Therapy can help your child improve their playtime, school performance, and their daily activities. It also builds an overall sense of accomplishment and self-esteem.
Thanks to OT, kids can achieve the following.
- Develop their motor skills so they can pick and release toys. It also helps them develop handwriting and computer skills.
- Improve eye-hand coordination
- Mastering basic life skills such as getting dressed, bathing, self-feeding, and brushing teeth.

As a parent, you have a huge role in the success of your child’s language or speech therapy progress. Parents who are more involved allow their children to finish the program faster and with long-lasting results. If you sign up for the program, you should ask the therapist how you can help.
For instance, you should help your child with any activities the SLP suggests doing at home. As such, there will be notable continued progress as well as carryover of new skills. Note that overcoming a language or speech disorder often takes time and effort. Therefore, all family members should be patient and understanding.
