Speech Language Pathology
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are licensed professionals who specialize in the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide variety of communication and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Examples of the services that our SLPs provide include:
Articulation/speech sound therapy for children whose speech is difficult to understand
Early intervention for “late-talkers” or children who remain largely nonverbal after they reach their second birthday
Intervention for children who have trouble communicating and functioning in social situations secondary to Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Treatment for children and adults who have suffered strokes, traumatic brain injuries, and various neurodegenerative diseases which have had an effect on their ability to communicate.
Treatment of dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) resulting from a wide variety of disorders in adults and children.
Because everyone is different, our SLPs individualize the treatment techniques that they use in order to suit the unique needs of each patient.
During your initial evaluation with an SLP, you will be asked several questions about previous medical and developmental histories. Depending on the reason for your visit, you or your child will likely be asked to participate in a variety of formal and informal assessments. The SLP may then recommend therapy for either 1 or 2 days per week and will also work with you to develop a set of goals for therapy.
