Pediatric Speech Therapy

Speech Therapists focus on helping children with articulation, communication, and feeding or swallowing difficulties in order to meet their social, language, and oral motor needs. Speech therapists also test how well the child understands the words used by others, follows directions, remembers things, and solves problems. A therapeutic plan is then developed with long-term and short-term goals.  Short-term speech goals typically include specific measurable steps that are taken to meet our long-term goals of optimal and successful communication and feeding skills.  The child may need sessions with a therapist, do activities at home and use special equipment to communicate.
