SPEECH AND LANGUAGE

DEVELOPMENT

IS SPEECH THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME OR ME CHILD?

  • If you have been referred by a doctor

  • There is a medical condition, which could impact communication abilities such as cleft lip, cleft palate, autism, hearing impaired, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, etc.

  • A parent is concerned about speech and language development

  • A child is not talking or saying any words by 18 months old – research shows children who begin therapy programs before 3 years-old have better outcomes

  • Cognitive (thinking) or other developmental delays

  • Concerns about dysfluency (stuttering)

  • Respiratory (breathing) problems

  • Weak oral muscles, oral-motor difficulties

  • Swallowing disorders

  • Motor planning problems

  • There is any frustration with communication abilities

Why would my child need speech therapy through this practice if he/she is currently receiving services through the school or Early Intervention (EI)?

 

Additional services may produce faster gains when given a different approach, setting, and frequency. Studies have shown a higher frequency in therapy will likely result in faster gains. A smaller caseload at our private practice allows for a more personalized and attentive experience for the family and child. Parents or guardians may have different goals addressed at a private practice than EI or schools. Other therapy settings may have large caseloads and have limited availability for therapy.
