Speech is a crucial tool in aiding your child’s development and learning. Speech therapy helps to treat disorders of speech, language, communication, swallowing/feeding and more. Our therapists create individualized plans of treatment to help your child function more independently and improve their quality of life. Our experienced and highly trained speech therapy staff specializes in a variety of speech therapy needs including:
