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.
