Speech + Language Therapy

Communication is the key to connection. A Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) helps create connections. Speech Therapy visits focus on a child’s overall ability to be able to interact with and enjoy his or her environment. Speech-Language Therapy generally helps a patient with communication, articulation, auditory processing, voice/fluency, and oral motor movements for speech/eating.
