Speech Therapy Services offered include evaluation and
treatment of your child in any of the following areas:
Speech/Articulation Skills- Our therapists identify which speech sounds your child should be producing correctly and teach your child how to say those sounds so that he/she can be understood by others.
Receptive/Expressive Language- Therapy targets teaching your child to be a better talker, listener, and learner. Evaluation consists of examining all areas of language and identifying what aspects of language that your child may have difficulty using to communicate with others.
Social Skills- Therapists examine the child's ability to communicate socially based on formal and informal testing (including observation and parent/teacher report). Therapy leads the child through age appropriate activities to increase social interaction and appropriate communication skills with peers.
Stuttering and Voice- Therapy targets fluent speaking in a variety of ways, depending on the age of the child. Therapists encourage the child to use smooth easy speech that is appropriate in volume and pitch. Patient and family education is also provided to promote fluent and easy speech in all enviroments.
