Children discover how to communicate their needs and wants from infancy by using nonverbal and verbal cues. Over time signals evolve into language.
Our speech therapy program helps children who struggle to develop speech and language.
Making the most of your time
Our speech therapists work with parents, caregivers and other health providers to deliver the best care. How long a child remains in speech therapy depends on the severity of the challenges, the frequency they receive treatment and the consistency of home support.

Ensuring their greatest potential
Some children enrolled in SLP therapy require support beyond developing speech and language. Often pairing speech therapy with occupational therapy (OT) or applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy supports their overall development.

We treat speech and language disorders to improve our clients' quality of life through more clear communications with their loved ones.
