Pediatric Speech Therapy

Pediatric Speech-language pathologists (also called SLPs) evaluate and treat infants to adolescents who have problems difficulties with speech sounds, language, social communication, voice, fluency, cognitive-communication, feeding and swallowing.

Children should typically be seen by a SLP if they have been diagnosed with a condition that may affect speech and language development if the parent has concerns that their child is not developing speech and language at a rate that is similar to his or her peers, or if they are experiencing difficulty with feeding or swallowing.

Our experienced staff has specialized training in their areas of practice. We value patients and families as partners in the treatment process and place a strong emphasis on patient and family education. We are also able to offer services in both English and Spanish.

We offer specialized services in the following areas:

  • Infant and child feeding and swallowing disorders
  • Pediatric speech and language delays and disorders
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism
  • Stuttering or fluency disorders
  • Acquired speech/language disorders such as aphasia, dysarthria and apraxia of speech
  • Cognitive disorders associated with a neurological event such as stroke, head injury or tumor
  • Pragmatic Language Disorders
  • Craniofacial abnormalities
  • Voice disorders
