What is a Speech Therapist?
When your child has the flu or a cold, you take them to see a doctor. If a child has communication difficulties, such as not talking clearly or not understanding directions, you take them to see a Speech/Language Pathologist. Speech therapists are specialists who help people of all ages to develop communication skills. They are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of speech, language, voice, and swallowing disorders. These disorders may result from a hearing loss, mental disabilities, physical disabilities, or most commonly from unknown causes. Speech therapists develop individualized treatment plans based on findings from their evaluations as well as from collaboration of other medical and educational professionals. In addition to treating these disorders, speech therapists counsel and support individuals and their families. They educate them on the speech/language disorder and on how to cope with the stress associated with these problems. They also help families on carry over of treatment techniques to use at home and on how to modify behavior that impedes communication.
What is an Occupational Therapist?
When your child has difficulty with movement or has sensitivities to lights and sound or their environment, you take your child to see an Occupational Therapist. Occupational therapy evaluates and treats a child's ability to participate in daily life activities or "occupations." Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants use their unique expertise to help children with social-emotional, physical, cognitive, communication, and adaptive behavior challenges. Through an understanding of the impact of disability, illness, and impairment on a child's development, play, ability to learn new skills, and overall occupational performance, occupational therapists design interventions that promote healthy development, establish needed skills, and/or modify environments, all in support of participation in daily activities. Occupational therapy practitioners also play a key role in educating parents, caregivers and program staff about child development, and they provide information about disability and diverse learning needs. Occupational therapists collaborate with parents and other members of the team to identify and conduct appropriate assessments and developmentally appropriate activities; plan and implement relevant intervention strategies; participation in family, learning, and community-based activities; reduce environmental barriers that limit a child's supports; and identify needed assistive technology devices.
