Speech Sound Therapy
Speech sound therapy involves teaching your child to spontaneously and correctly produce speech sounds. These services assist children and their families who may have been diagnosed with: Speech Sound Delay/Disorder, Phonological Delay/Disorder, (Suspected) Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Motor Speech Planning Delay/Disorder, or other neurodevelopmental disorders or syndromes.
Language therapy includes play-based activities, rule-based games, language bombardment, as well as explicit teaching of language concepts. Language therapy may be appropriate for those diagnosed with: Speech Delay (“Late Talker”), Receptive and/or Expressive Language Delay/Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or other neurodevelopmental disorders or syndromes.
Our occupational therapy benefits those who may have been diagnosed with: Visual Perceptual Delay, Sensory Processing Disorder, Dysgraphia, Fine Motor Planning difficulties, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or other neurodevelopmental disorders or syndromes.
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) therapy involves the use of both static items (such as pictures) and dynamic options (such as a speech generating device). Using pictures or a communication device gives your child a voice, a means of expression, which is celebrated and practiced throughout this type of intervention.
Voice therapy involves teaching your child to use his or her voice in a healthy manner. It works to eliminate a hoarse, strained, or raspy voice and reduce yelling, shouting, excessive talking, inefficient breath support, or chronic throat clearing. Our voice therapy benefits those who have been evaluated by an otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor) for vocal fold injury.
Fluency (Stuttering) Therapy
Stuttering therapy includes working with your child and family to promote smooth, effortless, and forward flowing speech. It works to reduce "disfluencies," such as repetitions of sounds or words, prolongations of sounds, or total blockages of sound. Our fluency therapy may be appropriate for children as young as two to four years of age who are beginning to demonstrate disfluencies, as well older individuals who are affected by disfluencies on a regular basis.
