What about speech pathologists?
Do speech pathologists and occupational therapists work together at times?
Speech pathologists conduct evaluations and treatment for children with articulation, receptive and expressive language, oral motor and feeding disorders. Speech therapists often collaborate with occupational therapists to address sensory difficulties that may be associated with feeding delays. They also help encourage and facilitate early communication development when a baby is only a few months of age.
Do you have a question or concern about your child’s motor skills or activity? Ask Magdalena.
