Deborah Brooks is a Speech-Language Pathologist providing speech therapy services throughout NYC. She is also the creator of the speech therapy coloring book series: Color in Speech 

The purpose of speech therapy is to improve an individual’s speech, language, communication, feeding, and swallowing abilities
so that they are able to accurately and appropriately communicate their wants, needs, and ideas as well as ask questions and safely and efficiently chew and swallow food.

Speech Pathologists  do this by targeting neuroplasticity.  They work to rewire an individual’s brain in order to relieve or heal a speech, language, communication,  feeding, or swallowing disorder.

Speech pathologists work to improve a client’s performance through consistent and deliberate repeated practice of
target behaviors.
