Pediatric Therapy

Pediatric Speech Therapy

Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy Helps Kids With: 

  • Speech: Treatment of articulation, phonological, and apraxia disorders. 
  • Communication: Treatment of expressive and receptive disorders common in children with autism, cognitive delay, down syndrome, etc.  
  • Feeding (how well we suck, chew, and swallow): Treatment of picky eaters and feeding aversions. A swallowing disorder may lead to poor nutrition, weight loss, and other health problems, if not treated early and appropriately.  
  • Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC): Working with non-verbal or highly unintelligible individuals who use low or high tech devices.  

For young children, therapy sessions are conducted through play, music, and other engaging activities. Older children who are able to sustain attention for an extended period of time will be presented with strategies they can use outside of therapy in order to succeed in school and in the community.
