Speech-Language Therapy addresses delays and disabilities in communication, language, speech, and feeding/swallowing. Our speech-language pathologists work with children and families to increase skills and reduce frustration for the child and his or her family.

 

Speech-language therapy in your home may involve:

  • playing together
  • problem solving
  • following directions
  • imitating actions
  • imitating simple sounds
  • singing
  • social interactions

 

Methods that may be used with children include:

  • using gestures to communicate
  • practicing sign language
  • using augmentative communication systems
  • oral motor skill development related to speaking and eating
