Speech therapy helps treat communication and speech disorders in children. This can include physical exercises that can help strengthen the throat muscles. There are also specialized drills to improve voice clarity and sound. Sometimes speech therapy can be costly. Instead, online speech therapy activities are an affordable option to help improve your child's communication skills.
Parents can use the printable worksheets from the Speech TX website. These worksheets help improve your child's articulation, language and literacy skills. There are also online activities that both you and your child can play together. Speech TX also shows you how to create your own speech therapy activities. The website lists other resources and websites that parents can visit for more ideas on creating speech therapy activities. All of the games, worksheets and resources are free to use.
