Pediatric Speech Language Therapy

  • Pediatric Speech Language

    Our speech-language pathologists offer child-centered and play-based therapy to maximize participation and create a fun learning environment. Our treatment programs are specifically designed and customized to treat all aspects of communication from a child’s first words to their ability to socialize and interact with peers. Our speech-language pathologists also provide interventions for auditory processing and comprehension in conjunction with appropriate use of vocabulary and grammar in functional communication.

    All of our treatment programs are specific to the individual child and customized to highlight functional goals during the therapy session that can be sustained by the child and family at home.

    In addition to receptive and expressive language, speech-language pathologists target articulation of speech sounds, as well as speech fluency and voice disorders in order to improve a child’s ability to be understood within their environment.

    Our speech language therapy program can provide significant benefits for:

    • Social pragmatic communication disorders

    • Receptive and expressive language disorders
    • Auditory processing disorders
    • Cognitive/Attention impairment
