Services
  1. Evaluations
    We conduct evaluations to differentially diagnose speech sound disorders, including CAS, dysarthria, phonological processing disorders, and fluency disorders. Our speech language pathologists have extensive knowledge and training in motor speech disorders so that they can reliably diagnose motor speech disorders.
  2. Fluency Therapy
    Our approach focuses on giving children the tools to manage fluency and manage stuttering. The child's social and emotional state is an integral part of therapy.
  3. Therapy for Phonological Processing Disorders
    We use highly specialized knowledge, training and experience of speech sound production to effectively treat articulation and phonological processing disorders. Parents and/or caregivers are fully educated so that children make maximum progress.
  4. Treatment for Motor Speech Disorders
    We treat children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and dysarthria using an eclectic therapy approach based on the principles of motor learning. We rely heavily on DTTC (Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing) but also include techniques from other research-based methodologies. For school-age children who are struggling with reading, we also teach reading using the principles of motor learning.
  5. Literacy Instruction
    No single intervention will have as dramatic an effect on a student’s learning and success as will a solid foundation in literacy. Reading and writing is a necessary skill to access all subjects in education. Without it, many learning doors are closed. Our literacy instruction services will focus on basic reading skills all the way to interpreting and analyzing various texts as well as writing for a variety of purposes.
  6. Expressive and Receptive Language Therapy
    Receptive language or comprehension is a fundamental part of communication. We strive to optimize children’s understanding of language. Expressive language disorders can occur on their own or in conjunction with other disorders, such as CAS.
  7. Social-Pragmatic Skill Building
    Many, if not all, children with communication disorders struggle with social-pragmatic skills. We include these skills as part of a child’s overall treatment plan so that as their other communication skills develop, their social-pragmatic skills progress at the same time. We offer both individual therapy and social groups.
  8. Consultations
    We offer consultations with other professionals including speech language pathologists, ABA therapists, teachers, and occupational therapists so that everyone in a child’s home and school environments is equipped to assist with the child’s communication. We also incorporate input from other professionals into our therapy sessions so that the child is able to perform their best.
