Speech-Language Pathology

Our Speech-Language Pathologists understand that the ability to communicate is essential to learning, play, and social interaction.  Impaired communication can affect every aspect of a child's life.  Our Speech-Language Pathologist evaluate and 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. Then our expert therapists use techniques based on your child's individual needs to help expand comprehension, expressive language and prouctino of speech.
