Thanks, Preds Foundation, for great therapy seating.

Our Speech-Language Pathologists understand that the ability to communicate is our most human characteristic and is essential to learning, play, and social interaction.  Impaired communication can affect every aspect of a child's life.  When concerns arise regarding communication abilities, a thorough evaluation by a Speech-Language Pathologist may be conducted to determine a child's communication strengths and weaknesses.  Based on your child's individual needs, expert therapy techniques can be utilized to help expand his or her comprehension and/or production of language experienced daily.

Speech and Language therapy at High Hopes addresses a variety of communication disorders including:
Sound production (articulation)
*  Receptive language skills (understanding and following directions)

Fluency (speed of speech and stuttering)
