Our pediatric speech therapy program offers comprehensive services for infants, children and adolescents. We treat a wide variety of disorders, including problems with speech, language and swallowing.
Conditions that benefit from speech therapy include:
- Aphasia (a complex acquired neurological disorder which is caused by damage to the portions of the brain that are responsible for language)
- Apraxia (general term used to describe a wide range of medical conditions that are characterized by an inability to perform complex movements)
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Cognitive impairments such as attention, memory, and problem solving disorders
- Language-based learning disabilities
- Speech-resonance problems associated with cleft palate and craniofacial anomalies
- Swallowing (dysphagia) and feeding disorders
- Voice disorders
- Conditions that require tracheostomies or ventilators
Every child is unique and our staff is committed to understanding the individual rehabilitation needs of each patient.
The ability to communicate is our most human characteristic. A communication disorder is an interruption in the expressive and/or receptive ability to communicate through speech, language and in voice.
