Speech & Language Therapy

Speech and language therapy focuses on a child′s ability to communicate both verbally and non-verbally. Children communicate using a wide variety of means, from simple gestures to one to two word utterances to more complex skills such as those necessary to sustain a conversation. As children grow they learn to engage in social situations and read and respond to non-verbal gestures and body language. Speech and language pathologists emphasize receptive and expressive communication, articulation, social pragmatics, feeding, and oral-motor skills. At Pediatric Therapies, the speech and language pathologists are an integral part of our multi-disciplinary team so that language can be reinforced across all environments.
