What is the role of "educate" in speech therapy?

Education includes any activity where the client is learning about the science, psychology, or sociology of communication. This includes their personal experience of communication, as well as principles of communication in the world at large. These topics could include high-level concepts like code switching or the approach-avoidance hypothesis, or technical knowledge like vocal anatomy and the rationale behind techniques. 

Education is connected to two outcomes (Cs): competency and change.

Competency (ease x education) occurs when you know what you are doing and why you are doing it; you are proficient enough to produce the desired result consistently. 

Change (education x empowerment) occurs when you have the knowledge and courage to forge your own path forward. You’re able to see a goal or challenge you want to overcome, and are able to make your own plan and keep yourself moving forward.
