What does Speech therapy look like for teens?

Teenagers work with speech-language pathologists (SLPs) for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to concerns regarding: social skills, understanding and using spoken language, understanding and using written language, voice (e.g., hoarseness, vocal hygiene), swallowing, executive functions (e.g., planning/organizing, working memory), and articulation. Therapy begins following a comprehensive evaluation with a certified SLP. The SLP works with the teen and his/her family to create meaningful, measurable, and achievable goals for the teen in the area that has been identified by the diagnosis. The teen attends therapy at the recommended frequency and duration and is provided with therapeutic exercises and activities to support growth in the area of concern. The SLP will record progress toward each therapy goal, based on the teen’s participation during therapy sessions. The teen will be discharged from speech therapy when all goals are achieved.
