Evaluation & Treatment for Disorders

Speech-language therapy is indicated when an individual has difficulties with any facet of communication. Before therapy can begin, an evaluation is required that determines the individual's current level of functioning. Evaluations include the examination of oral motor skills, speech skills (including articulation, voice, fluency and accent), auditory skills, feeding skills, receptive and expressive (oral or sign) language skills, and auditory skills.

Speech-language therapy is often needed for individual's with a variety of disorders or concerns, including:​
 

  • Deafness/Hearing Loss

  • Cleft Lip & Palate​

  • Articulation Disorder

  • Language Disorder

  • Autism/Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Foreign Accent

  • Down Syndrome

  • Mental Retardation

  • Strokes/CVAs

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Oral Motor Difficulties/Feeding Difficulties

  • Stuttering

  • Late Talkers

  • Apraxia

  • Voice Disorders
     

Multilingual Services

​ 

In our bilingual community, it is often a question of whether learning a second language will cause a language delay in a child. Learning more than one language does not cause language delays. Bilingual children develop language skills just as other children do. If, however, there is a concern regarding your bilingual child’s speech or language development, we can evaluate the child in both languages and treat in both languages if a disorder exists.

Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing Services

A variety of treatment approaches for articulation and language development are offered based on the needs of each individual, regardless of the degree of hearing loss or type of hearing amplification/technology used. Approaches include Auditory-Verbal Therapy, oral methods (speech reading and auditory discrimination), aural rehabilitation, and Total Communication (sign + oral).
