Spoken language involves listening to the spoken language of others and learning to use speech sounds, words and sentences to communicate. English and French are the spoken languages supported by the IHP. A Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) will work with your child to help develop spoken language. He/She will also teach you ways to help your child develop spoken language. The SLP will regularly measure your child’s progress and work with other professionals on your child’s team to help you make the best decisions about services for your child.
