Prior to beginning speech therapy, a comprehensive speech and language evaluation must be completed. We offer both pediatric and adult evaluations. During the evaluation, our speech therapists will determine each client’s individual needs and communication goals. Our therapists will then design a treatment plan for how to meet and exceed those goals.

Pediatric speech therapy focuses on improving the following skills: receptive and expressive language, social skills, and articulation/phonology. By incorporating a variety of fun, age-appropriate therapy activities, our therapists, along with parents and caregivers, are able to help children learn the various skills they need to reach their communication goals. Family engagement, creativity and individualized therapy services are all valued tools used to help children achieve their fullest potential.

Speech therapy for adults focuses on promoting communication independence by improving an individual’s comprehension, expressive language, articulation, reading and writing skills, as well as cognitive ability. Though some speech and language difficulties may arise as a child, many adults experience communication breakdowns stemming from strokes and traumatic brain injuries. Our therapists work with adults and their caregivers to decrease communication breakdowns and allow for more successful conversational exchanges.
