Speech & Language Therapy

 

Speech and Language development varies greatly according to age.  If you have concerns, please call or email.  The sooner treatment starts, the better the prognosis.

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are Nationally Certified and must have a State License.  Speech-Language Pathologists must obtain a minimum of a Master's Degree in the areas of Communication Disorders and Speech-Language Pathology.

 

Some SLPs also specialize in Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy, which is an additional focus on the muscle strength and coordination of the face and tongue to ensure adequate breathing, chewing, swallowing, and speaking.

 

SLPs provide services for the following:

 

Speech Production

Cognition

Feeding/Swallowing

Fluency (aka "Stuttering")
