What is Speech Therapy?
Speech Therapy is a treatment approach used to improve communication at all levels including the production of speech sounds, stuttering, improving your child’s ability to comprehend spoken language and alternate means of communication (e.g. a device that speaks for a child, etc.).
How does Speech therapy work?
A referral is made through your child’s physician. Upon receipt of the referral a thorough evaluation is completed and an individualized plan is written for your child’s specific needs. Your child’s therapy program will then be implemented by a highly trained Speech and Language Pathologist.
How do you I know that I need Speech Therapy for my Child?
Do others have difficulty understanding your child? Does your child have trouble following directions and understanding what you say to them? Is stuttering a concern? Is your child older than eighteen (18) months old and not speaking or use less than twenty (20) words? Regardless of age, does your child have a problem with social language? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, your child may be in need of speech therapy.
