Speech Therapy

There are many ways for children to communicate with their families and peers.  Safe and effective feeding and swallowing is also a vital part of a child’s health.  Our speech therapists are committed to improving speech, language, and oral-motor control in order for kids to interact effectively and make meaningful connections.

We consider each patient to be unique and develop individualized care for children with the following:

  • Speech disorders such as articulation problems, apraxia, and fluency issues
  • Expressive language disorder
  • Receptive language disorder
  • Social communication difficulties
  • Oral-motor weakness
  • Swallowing and feeding disorders in infants, toddlers, and older children
  • Prematurity
  • Neurological impairments
  • Post-traumatic swallowing problems
  • Respiratory and breath support impairments

 

Our speech therapists continually advance their skills to provide effective speech, language, and oral-motor interventions.
