Speech Therapy

Speech Pathologists help children develop and improve language, communication, cognitive processing, and social skills. They evaluate and treat children of all ages with disorders ranging from mild delays in development to severe communication delays and syndromes. Treatment can be one-on-one or in groups and may involve augmentative technology or be facilitated with the use of sensory equipment. All therapies incorporate play and motivating activities with the goal of the functional use of communication skills in the child’s everyday environments.
