Speech and language therapy helps children communicate and interact with others throughout their day and in all settings. Our speech-language pathologists (SLPs or speech therapists) provide services that address speech production, language skills, and social skills. Using play based and age appropriate activities, our speech therapists work with children to enhance articulation, improve receptive or expressive language and enhance pragmatic use of language for social interaction and learning.
Speech therapy might include playing games, having conversations, practicing sound productions, oral motor exercises or engaging in social and play activities. Treatment always focuses on functional goals that improve the quality of the child’s communication and interactions with others and enhances the child’s ability to engage with the world around them. Home exercises and activities are provided to increase skills and foster skill carry-over into the home and community.
Children who benefit from speech therapy include but are not limited to children who have:
- Speech articulation disorders
- Voice disorders
- Receptive or expressive language delays
- Pragmatic language delays
- Difficulty with social skills
- Difficulty with feeding or other oral motor skills
- Learning disorders
