Areas We Treat

 

 

We have SLPs who are PROMPT-trained and use this technique as part of the approach for children with motor speech disorders

We offer speech and language assessment and treatment for a number of disorder areas, including:

Articulation/Phonological delays or motor speech disorders

This refers to difficulties pronouncing certain sounds (e.g., using "p" in place of "f" or omitting a particular sound) or with overall speech clarity.

Late talkers

Some toddlers are late to start talking or are using a limited number of words.  We coach parents to use a number of strategies for enhancing language development in these children.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Stuttering

Stuttering affects the fluency of speech. Stuttered speech often includes repetitions of words or parts of words, prolongations of sounds, blocking of sounds or words and interjections (“um, um”).

We have SLPs trained in the Lidcombe Program of Early Stuttering Intervention and utilize this approach with children who are stuttering.
