Speech therapists can help with communication, eating and more. 

We provide services to children, teens and young adults with developmental, neurological and congenital impairments.  Services can be habilitative (learning a skill for the first time) or rehabilitative (becoming more proficient at a skill or relearning a skill).  We focus on improving a child’s ability to interact with and enjoy his environment.

  • Phonological Awareness/ Phonological Processing
  • Voice/ Fluency
