Speech and Language Therapy Services
Successful communication, verbal or non-verbal, is critical to social, emotional and academic development. Our highly skilled clinicians are dedicated to helping your child become an effective and confident communicator.
We draw upon both timeless and cutting edge treatment methods and techniques to ensure the best outcomes for your child’s unique needs. We are skilled in PROMPT, the motor based techniques of Beckman, Rosenfeld-Johnson and Marshalla, the Lidcombe Program of Early Stuttering Intervention, Floortime and the SCERTS Model to name a few. We confidently work with medically compromised infants and toddlers, including those with mechanical airways (tracheostomy tubes) and craniofacial differences.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Articulation and speech sound disorders
- Receptive and expressive language disorders and delays
- Apraxia of speech
- Pragmatic and social language challenges
- Auditory processing deficits
- Dysarthria/motor weakness
- One-way speaking valve training (Passey-Muir Valve)
- Cleft palate/craniofacial speech and resonance challenges
- Voice disorders
If you feel that your child is struggling in the areas of speech and language, please contact the staff at Speak Live Play to schedule an evaluation. We’re here to help!
Individual speech and language evaluations are scheduled by appointment and typically last 1 to 1.5 hours. Your child’s skills will be evaluated using formal standardized assessment tools, informal observations, language sampling and parent observation and report. Postural and respiratory support systems will be considered and oral-motor strength and coordination will be assessed to help us determine the underlying causes for your child’s speech and language challenges.
A personalized written report based on the evaluation findings will be prepared for you
