HOW CAN WE HELP YOU
Therapies We Offer
We offer a wide range of speech therapy services including speech, language, feeding, as well as oral-motor and orofacial myofunctional treatment.
Speech and Language
If you’ve been told your child needs speech therapy, that could mean so many different things! We treat and assess various communication disorders including articulation errors, language delays, feeding difficulties, and impacted social skills.
Oral Motor and Orofacial
Oral motor impairment can affect feeding and speech development. When the muscles of the face are impacted, the mouth and face can’t function properly. These can be either from birth (congenital) or from some sort of trauma (acquired).
Feeding and eating isn’t always easy for kids. A pediatric feeding disorder can be difficult for the entire family. We are here to minimize its effects and make eating a fun part of your day again with specialized therapy that slowly introduces new foods or eating/swallowing patterns.
WHY CHOOSE US
Benefits of Our Therapy
We create a personalized treatment plan for each client. No two clients are alike, and neither is their treatment. Speech and occupationaltherapy should be as unique as you are.
Our therapists use evidence-based practice that has been proven to be effective. We have experience working with numerous and various clients and understand that we are not just treating a list of symptoms, we help you to best meet your needs.
We use SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely) that make tracking your therapy progress easy. You won't be guessing if there’s progress, you'll know!
How It Works
Your life may be complicated, but scheduling speech therapy doesn’t have to be. Our process is simple.
Set up an Evaluation
We start with an Evaluation to know exactly what you need and then set up speech therapy goals that are relevant to you or your child.
Make Your First Appointment with our Team
We’ll set up future appointments and send reminders so that it’s not one more thing you have to remember.
