We evaluate and treat children of all ages – from birth through adolescence.

Speech delays and disorders

Articulation

  • Difficulty saying age appropriate sounds based on normal speech development patterns
    (e.g., a child says “wion” instead of “lion”).

 

Phonology

  • Errors that affect a group of sounds that compromise a child’s speech and language system
    (e.g., a child consistently drops the last sound in all of their words).
Language Delays and Disorders

Expressive Delays

  • Difficulties conveying a message. Potential areas of difficulty include incorrect use of plurals, gender pronouns, verb tenses and conjunctions.

 

Receptive Delays

  • Difficulties comprehending what is said
    (e.g., following multi-step instructions or understanding stories).

 

Auditory Processing Disorders

  • Difficulty making sense of information that the child hears.
Motor Speech Disorders

 

Childhood Apraxia of Speech

  • Trouble saying sounds, or combining sounds, syllables and words.
  • Inconsistent error patterns (e.g., “ball” may become “ba,” “uh,” “bap,” etc.).

 

Dysarthria

  • Unintelligible or imprecise speech related to muscle weakness. These children may exhibit slurred speech, difficulty controlling volume, rate of speech, intonation and resonance.
Reading Deficits

Pre-literacy Skills

  • The child may have poor language skills or an inability to recognize written words (e.g., their own name) or problems re-telling a familiar story.


Phonological Awareness

  • Difficulty understanding sound structure (e.g., challenges sounding out new words, separating words into syllables, separating syllables into individual sounds or understanding rhymes.
