How can our speech/language therapy services help your child?
Our pediatric speech and language pathologists diagnose and treat a wide variety of communication disorders. They help children and young adults improve their language, communication, and speech abilities and skills. These may include alternative methods such as sign language or computer-aided communication. Treatment plans may include play-based techniques to foster communication skills while having fun. Our child-centered environment includes toys, books, balls, and much more.
Therapists develop a treatment plan with the input of the child’s physicians and family. Treatment plans are continuously monitored and adjusted to fit the child’s changing needs, abilities, and interests. Custom home-based programs help parents guide their child’s progress between appointments.
Specialized Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) assessments available.
