Speech therapy or speech pathology is "the scientific study and treatment of defects, disorders, and malfunctions of speech and voice, as stuttering, lisping, or lalling, and of language disturbances, as aphasia or delayed language acquisition". While some individuals may have been born with a speech impediment, others like Amy have inherited it from a chronic illness. Regardless, a good Speech Therapist has to be, not only knowledgeable of the various medical conditions and the challenges faced by their patients, but also be persistent and encouraging. It is also crucial for a Speech Therapist to radiate positivity because often enough patients give up when they're not making progress.

So what does it take to be a speech specialist? Here's an infographic on how to be a Speech Therapist in Singapore!
