As speech-language pathologists, we evaluate, diagnose and treat children with a broad range of speech, language and communication disorders.  We offer individualized intervention, allowing the child to increase attention, production, participation and progress. We treat individuals with delays and disorders in the areas of feeding and swallowing, oral-motor dysfunction, childhood apraxia of speech, Autism and sensory-based language and communication difficulties, fluency and stuttering, social-skills and pragmatic language, auditory processing, augmentative communication, expressive and receptive language, articulation and phonological disorders.


We offer treatment in a small treatment room setting, but often engage the child in the gym or sensory room, depending on their

interests and needs. We work closely with parents to develop home programs and individualized treatment plans. In treatment, we encourage progress of communication skills through play and structured activities. Additionally, we work closely with physical and occupational therapists to encourage carry-over and develop unique therapeutic services. Benefits of speech and language therapy include:

  • Developing language production and understanding
  • Increasing articulation and speech-sound production
  • Encouraging development of social-language and play skills
  • Increasing cognitive, auditory memory and processing skills
  • Improving feeding and swallowing skills to consume foods safely
  • Establishing effective and functional means of communication to      increase patient expression
