Pediatric Speech Therapy

What is Pediatric Speech Therapy?

Pediatric speech-language pathologists work to help children communicate effectively by assisting with the improvement of their verbal and non-verbal language skills. We also help with things like feeding and swallowing abilities. We work with children of all ages, from newborns to young adults, to help with all these skills. In addition to specializing in treating feeding and swallowing disorders, we also focus on improving three areas of communication – speech, receptive language, and expressive language. When we work with children on speech, we are looking to improve children’s articulation, decrease stuttering (disfluency), or treat voice disorders.
