Speech, Language, & Educational Therapy for Children 2-22
Serving All Types of Learning Challenges Including Autism
A highly EXPERIENCED and CREDENTIALED team of speech/language pathologists,educational therapists/ learning disability experts, who each have up to 20-30 years experience. Our team has experts in: articulation disorders, auditory processing disorders, oral-motor speech difficulties, language delay, autism spectrum disorders, and all aspects of communication. This practice is unique because we also treat the link between communication and reading/ academic learning and integrate work on oral and written communication to maximize outcomes not only for speech/ communication purposes, but also to maximize school success.

We offer a variety of techniques/programs to meet individual needs, including: Social Skills groups, Lindamood Bell, Wilson, & Many Other Programs for Learning Differences, Hearing Impairment, Articulation and Language Disorders. and auditory processing disorders.

We believe that it is important to treat the whole child, not just a disability, and find what will bring the most change and success to that child's communication, education, and life experience.We also believe that learning for children should be fun, yet focused. Parents are kept well informed of therapy goals and progress after each session to allow for carry-over at home, which can ensure best progress.
