Being able to express our thoughts and opinions surely seems like something granted to us. However, over 20% of the UK population, roughly about 2.5 million people irrespective of age and gender, have  some difficulty in expressing their thoughts verbally. Some children have speech disorders from their birth which thankfully, with time and proper speech therapy, can be mended. While there are other stroke patients, deaf patients, or even laryngectomee patients who may face similar type difficulty with their speech, this is where a Speech Therapist comes in! 

Speech Therapists are some trained professionals who help people overcome their difficulties in speech. Through speech therapy, they train the verbally challenged people to communicate successfully through their speech. And no one without proper and systematic training can help others amending their speech.
