Developing communication skills is one of the most important factors to socializing and creating relationships. Our speech and language pathologists provide strategies and resources that assist a child to communicate with parents, siblings and friends.
Pediatric speech and language therapy services focus on articulation and phonological disorders, expressive and receptive language problems, auditory processing and neurological disorders, oral-motor deficits, cognitive skills such as problem solving and reasoning, social skills and behavior management.
