Speech Therapy

 Our Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) create individualized treatment plans to best meet each individual child’s needs. These treatment approaches are child-centered and play-based as we believe that children learn the best through play! This means that many speech sessions may look like reading a book while the SLP asks the child questions about what they read, playing a game while practicing speech sounds, engaging in gross motor activities in the gym while the SLP provides language models, and many more fun, play-based activities!


Our skilled Speech Language Pathologists work to assess, diagnose, and treat a variety of disorders including genetic, developmental, and social disorder such as: 

Speech Sound Production 

Speech sound production is often referred to as articulation disorder or phonological disorder. These terms simply mean that a child is having difficulty saying certain sounds when communicating. 

Receptive Language/Expressive Language 

Receptive language is referred to as the ability to understand language. Examples of this include following directions, reading comprehension, answering wh- questions, etc. 


Expressive language is referred to as the ability to express ones wants and/or needs through the use of verbal or non-verbal communication. Examples of this include asking questions, naming objects, etc.

Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTs)

TOTs can include ties of the tongue, lip, and cheek. This is when the frenulums (connective tissue) are short and/or thick and limit movement of the mouth. 


TOTs can affect feeding issues, speech delays, and wide variety of other symptoms.  


Fluency is the aspect of speech production that refers to the continuity, smoothness, rate, and effort with which language is spoken. Stuttering is the most common fluency disorder.

Reading/Phonological Awareness

Phonological awareness refers to a set of skills that children typically develop in the preschool years as pre-reading skills. During this phase, children learn how different letters and sounds create the words that we speak, read, and write.

Phonological Awareness skills include rhyming skills, segmenting words into smaller parts, combining separate sounds into words, and understanding that words are made up of sounds that can be represented by written letters.

Pragmatic Language

Pragmatic language refers to the social language skills that we use in our daily interactions with others. This includes what we say, how we say it, our non-verbal communication (eye contact, facial expressions, body language etc.) and how appropriate our interactions are in activities of daily living. 

Augmentative/Alternative Communication

The use of communication devices such as high tech devices (much like an iPad), core boards, switch boards, etc. These are devices that help children have a voice when traditional means are not presenting the child with the ability to communicate freely.

Feeding Skills 

Swallowing disorders can impact the oral, pharyngeal, or esophageal phase of swallowing. Our SLPs help children who have difficulties with one or more of these phases.
