Speech and Language Therapy

Speech/Articulation and Language Therapy

Our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Speech-Language Pathologist Assistants (SLPAs) provide quality and effective therapy using evidence-based practice treatment techniques to promote speech, language, and overall communication development.

A speech or articulation disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds.

Speech disorders include:

  • Articulation disorders:difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can’t understand what’s being said.
  • Fluency disorders:problems such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, partial-word repetitions (“b-b-boy”), or prolonging sounds and syllables (sssssnake).
  • Resonance or voice disorders:problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what’s being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking.

Language Therapy

A language disorder refers to a problem understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive:

  • Receptive disorders:difficulties understanding or processing language.
  • Expressive disorders:difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.
  • Cognitive-communication disorders:difficulty with communication skills that involve memory, attention, perception, organization, regulation, and problem solving.
