Speech Therapy

Our speech-language pathologists support your child’s speech and language skills so that they can be effective communicators. With the family's priorities in mind, our speech-language pathologists will work collaboratively with you and your child to help you achieve your goals.

Our therapists have experience and knowledge working with children with a variety of diagnoses, including:

  • Expressive, receptive, and/or mixed language delay or disorder
  • Articulation/phonological disorder
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Social language deficits
  • Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS)

  • Auditory processing disorder (APD)
  • Fluency/stuttering
  • Down syndrome
  • Voice disorder
  • Tethered oral tissues (TOTs)
  • Cleft palate or other craniofacial anomalies

How do I know if my child needs a speech and language evaluation?

Your child may need a speech and language evaluation if:

  • They are difficult to understand
  • They are not yet imitating sounds or words
  • They are not yet saying enough words or combining words independently
  • They are not yet using appropriate sentence structure
  • They have difficulty following directions and/or answering simple questions
  • They have difficulty communicating in social settings
  • They “get stuck” on sounds, words, or phrases
  • They have a limited repertoire of food types and food groups
