No Stone Is Left Unturned.
This area of speech focuses on the production of sounds, words, placement of tongue when speaking and helping children to be understood.
Stuttering, choppy and robotic speech are all signs of disfluency. A major Part of a child using their voice is the ability to fluently convey ideas.
Voice and Resonance
Did you know that if your child has a raspy voice or hoarseness it can be coached out with voice and resonance training?
For children that are unable to express themselves verbally, we use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) to develop a system of non-verbal communication.
Often times children may have a hard time following directions beyond two steps. This is caused by underdeveloped receptive language skills.
Believe it or not, if your child is having a hard time eating it could be due to a swallowing disorder. There are exercises that will correct this problem.
Receptive / Expressive Language
Learning words and stringing them together coupled with gestures such as a head nod or thumbs up is a major part of language. This a skill we develop in all children we have the pleasure to work with.
Cognitive Assessments of Communication
Cognitive refers to the brain. There are times brain function can affect attention span, awareness, memory and reasoning. Theses skills are not innate and can be taught through speech therapy.
