Our speech language pathologists help children develop communication abilities and treat articulation, language, swallowing, and voice disorders. We use a team approach when evaluating or providing services for children. Speech therapists work with the family, the physician and other caregivers to optimize outcomes in clinic, home and community environments. Our treatment plan is tailored for the specific needs of each and child and includes:
- Articulation/Speech Production
- Understanding communication – receptive language
- Expressing needs, wants and ideas – expressive language
- Voice Disorders
- Fluency Disorders – Stuttering
- Swallowing, Feeding and Oral Motor Difficulties
- Feeding Therapy
Our goals encompass each child to gain the skills to perform everyday activities in the best possible way. Whether the issue is a hearing loss, difficulty with swallowing or balance, a disorder such as stuttering or delayed language or a voice problem, a person’s ability to learn and interact with others can be affected.
Our speech language pathologists use many different techniques to help facilitate the best performance. They also are well-versed in assistive technology and augmentative communication, offering ideas for low-tech to high-tech aides to assist children with speech, language and communication issues.
