Speech and Language Therapy

Speech and Language Therapy focuses on the development of receptive and expressive communication, oral-motor function, speech intelligibility, articulation, and early feeding and swallowing skills. As pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists, we work towards helping children to understand language, develop broader vocabulary, and increase the complexity of language they are able to use. We also work on increasing strength and control of the muscles of the mouth for improved speech production and feeding skills.

Our Pediatric SLP’s specialize in (but are not limited to):

  • PROMPT – a tactile cuing method used with children with Apraxia of Speech
