Our Speech Therapy services work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat deficits in speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders. Speech language pathologists work with clients to improve speech and language skills through a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches. They provide direct services in the home and our clinics.
Speech Therapy services focus on teaching clients and families about the process of communication, such as making requests and expressing feelings. Our licensed speech pathologists teach families strategies for communicating with their non-verbal infant or toddler through gestures and signs, and for developing receptive and expressive language skills for daily activities.
Speech language pathologists provide direct services to clients both in home and clinic settings.
