What is a Speech Language Pathologist?
Speech-Language Pathologists, also known as SLPs, are experts in communication who engages in professional practice across the life span from babies to geriatrics. SLPs treat many types of communication and swallowing problems. Communication and swallowing are broad terms encompassing many facets of function. Communication includes speech sound production and fluency, language, literacy, social communication, cognition, voice, resonance, and hearing. Swallowing includes all aspects of swallowing, including related feeding behaviors. The SLP assesses the underlying communication and/or swallowing challenges and addresses the findings with therapy, when applicable, with the goal of achieving desired optimal outcomes.
Speech and Language Assessments
We assess speech, language, and communication abilities to identify communication strengths and weaknesses and recommend goals for therapy. Parent interview, observation, and formal testing may be used to evaluate your child’s speech and language development.
Speech and Language Therapy
Individual speech and language therapy sessions are available. Therapy sessions for children are play-based and functional, engaging the child with games and activities that are designed to teach specific communication skills. Services are provided at our office or some daycares/private schools.
