A child’s communication is considered delayed when the child is noticeably behind their peers in the acquisition of speech and/or language skills. Sometimes a child will have greater receptive (understanding) than expressive (speaking) language skills, but this is not always the case.
Our speech language pathologists help your child:
- Improve control of the pitch of their voice
- Improve control of the volume of their voice
- Decrease stuttering
- Improve pronunciation
- Improve articulation
- Improve the ability to follow directions
- Improve vocabulary
- Improve the use of words
- Improve the ability to express ideas
Treating your child includes examining, evaluating, and assessing the areas in which your child may have difficulty functioning and then incorporating activities to address these areas. After examining your child, our professional therapists will make an evaluation of their findings using a combination of standardized tests, observations, and/or clinical expertise.
