Pediatric Speech Therapy (Speech Language Pathology)

Communication bolsters a child's ability to learn and helps them interact with others. Our pediatric speech therapist evaluates a child’s current communication skills so they can improve their verbal and/or nonverbal skills appropriate for their age.

Speech therapists work with families, caregivers and physicians to develop a treatment plan and establish goals. This helps children feel more confident and discover how to communicate in a more functional way. 

Speech therapists also help children experiencing difficulties with social communication disorders, cognition, articulation disorders, stuttering disorders, and oral motor and feeding disorders.
