Speech Therapy

Our Speech and Language Therapy team offers assessment and treatment to children who exhibit delays or deficiencies in the areas of:

  •  Auditory Processing - is the ability to interpret the sounds that one has heard.
  • Articulation and Oral Motor Skills (Including apraxia/dyspraxia) - Articulation is the way that humans produce speech. Oral-motor skills refer to the movement of the muscles of the face (e.g., mouth, jaw, tongue, and lips). This includes muscle tone, muscle strength, range of motion, speed, coordination, and dissociation (the ability to move oral structures, such as the tongue and lip, independently of each other)
  • Receptive and expressive language - Receptive language refers to how your child understands language. Expressive language refers to how your child uses words to express himself/herself.
  • Pragmatic Language - is the use of appropriate communication in social situations (knowing what to say, how to say it, and when to say it).
  • Fluency /Stuttering - fluency which is often referred to as “stuttering”, is characterized by primary (core) and secondary behaviors. Primary behaviors may include repetitions of sounds, syllables, or whole words; prolongations of single sounds; or blocks of airflow or voicing during speech.
  • Feeding Therapy  - helps teach a child how to eat or eat better.
  • Executive Functioning - is a set of mental skills that include working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control. We use these skills every day to learn, work, and manage daily life. Trouble with executive function can make it hard to focus, follow directions, and handle emotions, among other things.

A comprehensive assessment will be conducted to create an individualized treatment plan to enable your child to effectively communicate in the home, school and community.
