Speech therapy is commonly perceived as a treatment to primarily help those who cannot make certain sounds properly or who have stutters or lisps.However, speech therapy has also proven effective in assisting individuals with other types of difficulties with spoken and written language, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and auditory processing disorder.For this reason, speech therapists are now more accurately referred to as speech-language pathologist (SLP).
