speech language pathologists

Our speech-language pathology team is a highly skilled group of professionals with a combined 75 years of pediatric experience.  Our therapists provide evidence-based intervention to integrate all aspects of speech and language development, not just how clearly a child speaks.  These aspects include receptive and expressive language, fluency, auditory processing, respiration, voice, pragmatic language, oral motor, swallowing and dysphagia, and speech sound disorders including childhood apraxia of speech. Our team also addresses cognitive components such as problem solving, reasoning, attention, memory, and executive functioning.  Our therapists have specialty training in Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC), the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), and social skills teaching.  Additionally, the speech team has a therapist that has a Bilingual Certification, speaks Spanish, and is fluent and able to conduct therapy and evaluations for our Spanish speaking clients. Whether your child is hard to understand, struggles with attention, or has not started speaking yet, we are here to help.
