Mirrors, Speech Therapy
Definition : Mirrors designed to show the head and neck of a person placed in front of them during speech therapy procedures. These mirrors typically consist of a shatter-proof glass or metallic device that provides a visual feedback to the patient of each "sound formation" from any desired angle. The mirrors can be supplied as wall-mounted, for table-top use, or mounted on casters (i.e., mobile). Speech therapy mirrors are intended to improve the skills needed for appropriate speech or for rehabilitation of patients that lost speech capabilities; they are also used by speech therapists to help children develop speech and language skills by letting them watch themselves and others form sounds and words.
