SPEECH THERAPY 

Pediatric speech and language therapy specializes in the evaluation and treatment of disorders and delays that limit a child’s ability to communicate with others and/or participate in safe and age-appropriate feeding. Speech-language therapy might be needed when a child’s communication or feeding skills limit his/her ability to function in daily activities.

 

Our pediatric speech-language pathologists specialize in helping children understand, communicate their wants and needs to others, interact with others, produce sounds correctly, speak fluently, and safely consume age-appropriate foods and liquids. 

Our therapists provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment focused on skills related to:

  • Receptive Language

  • Expressive Language

  • Pragmatics (social language skills during interactions with others)

  • Auditory Processing

  • Articulation disorders

  • Phonological Delays

  • Apraxia

  • Dysarthria

  • Fluency

  • Voice

  • Oral Motor/Feeding/Swallowing

Children who do not have the prerequisites for speech and language may require training to use an augmentative communication device.  Our pediatric speech-language pathologists are trained to assist your child in using a variety of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Systems including but not limited to the following:

  • High tech electronic devices

  • Low tech systems such as signing

  • Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS)
