Our team of speech-language pathologists are licensed health care professionals who evaluate and treat a wide range of speech, language, cognitive and communication disorders.
The treatment of speech and communication disorders helps children by using a variety of therapy approaches depending on the disorder.
More often than not, families make their first stop at the pediatrician to determine if a speech and language assessment may be appropriate for their child. Areas of concern for speech and language can range from articulation (what speech sounds the child is making), to language (how the child is understanding and using words to communicate), to social skills (how the child interacts with peers). While the range of “normal” can vary from person-to-person, there are general guidelines that can help determine if getting extra help may be needed. There are certain milestones a child should meet before the age of five.
Resources for expected milestones can be FOUND HERE.
