What does a Speech and Language Therapist do?

People I meet in everyday life often ask me ‘What exactly do you do?’   I often respond by saying ‘I help children to be more confident and able in sharing their ideas, thoughts and feelings with others’.

For those that want a more comprehensive description and a greater understanding of the skills of a Speech and Language Therapist I direct them to the more detailed Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) website.   I have included the link below.
