We support communication needs with dedication and passion

Fluent Speech, Improved Articulation, Enhanced Language Skills

Some children experience communication challenges such as having difficulty in understanding what is said to them, learning to talk, or talking clearly. These speech & language disorders, along with many other speech disorders can negatively impact a child’s social life and academic performance. A speech-language pathologist’s goal is to help clients develop the most effective and efficient  language and communication skills.  

Communication skills include the range of verbal and preverbal skills your child uses to connect with others. These skills can come in many forms including spoken language, written language, and alternative and augmentative communication. our speech-language pathologists work with caregivers and other professionals to support your child's communication journey across these areas.

Signs your Child Should See a Speech-Language Pathologist

Your child would benefit from speech therapy if they are experiencing any of the following:

Speech Disorders

  • Articulation Disorders: Articulation disorders are difficulties producing speech sounds correctly. While some of these are developmental in nature, it is important your child’s speech be evaluated if you have concerns with their articulation skills as these can result in difficulty being understood as well as with reading & spelling in early school years if untreated.
  • Fluency Disorders: These include stuttering, in which the flow of speech is disrupted by stops, partial or whole word repetitions, or prolonging sounds and syllables.
  • Resonance or voice disorders: Resonance or voice disorders are issues with the pitch, volume, or quality of a person's voice that causes the listeners to lose focus on what is being spoken. Such children often seem to lose their voice or often have a raspy voice.

Language Disorders

There are two types of language disorders: receptive and expressive. However, these are intertwined and often co-exist.

  • Receptive Language Disorders: Receptive disorders encompass concerns with language comprehension and processing. Such children have difficulty following directions, answering questions, or forgetting what they were asked to do. Receptive language disorders can be root causes of learning disabilities, and noticed when children do not seem to be learning as efficiently as their peers.
  • Expressive Language Disorders : A limited oral vocabulary, difficulty following grammatical rules, or difficulty combining words to communicate wants, needs, or ideas are all examples of expressive language disorders. Children experiencing these concerns may become frustrated when attempting to speak, have difficulty organizing their thoughts, generating spoken/written stories, and have difficulty retelling personal experiences, or information they learned.

What is involved in the Speech and Language Therapy Evaluation?

Dynamic assessment and goal setting in a friendly environment

The evaluation process begins with a review of background and developmental information provided by caregivers, followed by a caregiver interview. Both of these are vital to the planning and tailoring of the evaluation session. Our therapists utilize their clinical judgment as well as dynamic assessment and observation methods to determine your child’s strengths and areas of need. Following the initial evaluation, a report including the evaluation findings and recommendations for treatment will be provided.
