Speech-language Therapy

Pediatric speech therapists are dedicated professionals specializing in helping children overcome various communication challenges. Through personalized interventions, they address speech and language disorders, articulation, fluency, voice, feeding and social communication skills. By employing tailored strategies, pediatric speech therapists empower children to express themselves effectively, fostering improved communication, confidence, and overall well-being.

How we can help


Expressive/Receptive Language

Pediatric speech therapists (STs) are instrumental in supporting both expressive and receptive language skills in children. Through targeted interventions, STs help children develop the ability to express themselves clearly, using appropriate vocabulary and sentence structure. Simultaneously, they work on enhancing receptive language skills, enabling children to understand and interpret spoken and written language, fostering comprehensive and effective communication


Motor Speech Disorders/Apraxia

Pediatric speech therapists specialize in supporting children with apraxia of speech and motor speech disorders, addressing challenges related to motor planning and coordination of speech muscles. Through tailored interventions, speech therapists work on improving the precision and sequencing of speech movements, helping children overcome difficulties in articulation and sound production. The goal is to enhance the child's ability to communicate effectively, promoting clearer speech and facilitating successful interactions in various social and academic settings.



Pediatric speech therapists play a vital role in supporting fluency in children, addressing challenges such as stuttering or disfluencies. Through targeted interventions, speech therapists work to improve the rhythm and flow of speech, helping children communicate with increased smoothness and confidence. By employing strategies to manage and reduce disfluencies, pediatric speech therapists empower children to express themselves fluently, fostering enhanced communication skills and social interactions.


Social Communication

Pediatric speech therapists are essential in supporting social communication skills in children, addressing challenges related to pragmatic language and social interaction. Through targeted interventions, speech therapists work on enhancing a child's ability to navigate social cues, take turns, and engage in reciprocal conversations. The goal is to foster effective communication in various social contexts, promoting meaningful connections and successful interactions with peers and adults.



Pediatric speech therapists specialize in implementing Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) strategies to support children who have difficulty with verbal communication. Through personalized interventions, speech therapists assess and select appropriate AAC tools, such as communication boards or electronic devices, to enhance a child's ability to express thoughts and needs effectively. By facilitating the use of AAC, therapists empower children to engage in meaningful communication, promoting social interaction and participation in various environments.



Pediatric speech therapists play a crucial role in supporting children with feeding and swallowing difficulties. Through targeted interventions, therapists address issues such as oral motor coordination, sensory aversions, and difficulty swallowing safely. By employing specialized techniques and exercises, pediatric speech therapists help children develop the necessary skills for successful and safe feeding, promoting overall nutritional health and well-being
