How Speech-Language Therapy Works
Speech-language therapy helps children with their production of sounds and develops their language and communication skills. Speech-language therapy can address:
- Fluency disorders: Stuttering, stoppages, & sound prolongations
- Articulation disorders: Difficulty making sounds & pronouncing words
- Receptive disorders: Difficulty processing & understanding language
- Expressive disorders: Limited vocabulary & difficulty putting words together
- Resonance/voice disorders: Problems with pitch, volume, & quality of voice
- Oral feeding problems: Drooling & problems with eating & swallowing
Speech-language therapy may also be beneficial to children with:
- Hearing impairments
- Non-verbal communication problems:
- Body language, eye contact, facial expressions.
- Birth defects: Cleft palate/lip
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Cognitive & developmental delays
- Chronic hoarseness
Evaluations for Speech-Language & Feeding Therapy
We offer speech-language screenings to help identify potential communication challenges in young children. By screening early, we can determine whether your child will need further evaluation and treatment.
During an evaluation, a speech pathologist can identify the root cause of a child’s speech or language problem. They can also identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses, diagnose feeding and speech-language disorders, and map out an effective treatment plan going forward.
We offer a variety of treatment options for our patients, all personalized to develop your child’s language and speech skills. We also involve parents in the therapy process to encourage interaction and help children progress in their treatment program.
Here are some of the strategies we implement in speech-language therapy:
- Receptive/expressive language skills
