Speech Therapy

Pediatric speech-language pathologists assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive communications, voice, swallowing, and fluency. Our therapists work with patients on components of speech production and language, as well as oral motor and feeding. We understand that communication is best learned through functional social interactions, and our clinicians introduce a variety of fun, developmentally appropriate, experience-based activities to promote curiosity and conversation while learning. Treatment is typically one-on-one and may involve adaptations such as augmentative communication devices, gestures, assistive technology along with the use of sensory equipment to foster independent communication skills.
