Speech Language Therapy

Speech-language therapy is the treatment for childhood speech and/or language disorders. A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds, whereas a language disorder refers to a difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Therapists use a variety of intervention approaches. Speech Language Pathologists also address feeding and swallowing disorders.

Who Needs Speech Therapy?

The need for speech-language therapy often arises as a result of a developmental delay, articulation difficulties, fluency, receptive/expressive delays or feeding and swallowing disorder. If you notice that your child has trouble completing age-appropriate tasks such as not imitating sounds or other facial expressions, not using age appropriate words then speech-language therapy might be necessary. A visit to a Speech Language Pathologist might also be in order if you notice speech is not intelligible, if your child seems to not understand verbal directions or difficulty with eating and swallowing.

Examples of areas of specialization:

A Speech & Language therapy evaluation will assess, through standardized tests and clinical evaluations, the following:
