Pediatric speech therapy is uniquely designed to meet the concerns and needs of each patient and their family. Children with a variety of impairments may benefit from speech therapy, including:
· Speech and language delay
· Speech sound disorders
· Childhood apraxia
· Preschool language disorders
· Language-based learning disabilities
· Autism Spectrum Disorders
· Cleft Palate/Craniofacial Anomalies
· Hearing loss
· Auditory Processing Disorders
· Voice Disorders
· Congenital disorders
· Myofunctional disorders
A child’s treatment plan typically includes 1-3 sessions per week of one-on-one treatment. Parents and caregivers play a crucial role throughout treatment with carryover of therapy strategies in the home and completion of home practice given by your clinician.
Early Intervention: providing early intervention services to children ages 0-3 who are at-risk or already demonstrating speech, language and communication delays can have monumental benefits for children in later years. Intense language and speech stimulation for infants and toddlers during these critical years promotes the child’s growth and development and supports families during what can be a challenging time.
