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.

Japanese speaking speech-language intervention is available at Bothell Pediatric and Hand Therapy.  We are happy to announce that Daniel Miller, speech-language pathologist, performs speech-language intervention in Japanese for a variety of communication disorders: Early intervention (late talking, functional communication), Articulation,  Stuttering, and  Social skills.

If you would like more information on Japanese speech-language help , feel free to contact us at (425) 481-1933 or e-mail Danny directly at DannyM@bpht.com.

Therapy has helped Tasha become more independent and more aware of her surropundings. Speech therapy has helped Tasha with grammer, the sounding of the words more clearly, and also remembering the tenses. Overall, there is definitely a great improvement in every aspect of Tasha’s life!
