Speech and language therapy
Someone with an interest in getting people to use a therapy, such as making money, may overstate benefits and ignore possible problems.
People who pressure speech and language therapists to engage in their service or to use a particular intervention or assessment may just want to help you improve your practice. But they also may have other reasons, for example to make money. This can lead them to exaggerate the impact of therapy and to ignore limiting factors.
Similarly, people urging others not to use speech and language therapy may have different reasons for doing this, for example their moral beliefs.
BEWARE of claims about the effects of speech and language therapy that are made by people who make money from selling the service or who have other interests besides helping people.
REMEMBER: Think about whether someone making a claim about the effects of a therapy will make money from selling it. They may be tempted to exaggerate the effectiveness of the therapy, so just make sure you consider their claims carefully.
