Screenings & Evaluations

We offer screenings and comprehensive evaluations for speech and language services at our office by appointment.

Articulation & Phonology (Speech Sounds)

Is your child struggling with /r/?   Is his/her tongue protruding on /s/ and /z/ or other sounds?  If so, you may have a child with an articulation delay.

 

Is your child difficult for you to understand at times?  What about strangers?  Do you constantly have to translate?  If so, your child could have a phonological delay.

Language

Receptive and Expressive Language 

Autism & Autism Spectrum Disorders

If you have concerns about your child and his/her communication skills, you should seek medical advice from your pediatrician.  Regression of skills (child was talking and then stopped or no longer makes eye contact) is a major red flag that requires immediate intervention

Apraxia of Speech

Apraxia of Speech is a motor speech disorder.  Children with apraxia of speech have difficulty with motor planning.  For them, producing the precise, highly refined series of movements of the lips, tongue, jaw, and palate that are necessary for intelligible speech is very difficult.

Fluency (Stuttering)

Stuttering is a speech disorder which affects the flow of speech.  For most children, it begins during childhood and can last throughout life.

  Auditory Processing Disorders

Some people believe a child has APD because they have trouble processing language when in reality, they may just have difficulty with receptive language skills and not auditory processing.

Voice Disorders

Your voice and the ability to talk is a lot like breathing in that most of us take it for granted.

Telepractice

Do you need speech-language pathology services, but cannot find a local SLP close enough to your home?  Or, would you like to have the convenience of therapy in YOUR home without the hassle of traveling to an office even if you are in the same area? Why not consider telepractice, sometimes called teletherapy?

Orofacial Myology

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is the treatment of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMD).

Tongue Tie

Tongue tie is where the tongue is tethered to the floor of the mouth or to the gum line by the frenulum (string of tissue that anchors the tongue in the mouth).  If you lift up your tongue and look in the mirror, you will see the frenulum.

Teen & Adult Speech Therapy

Are you a teen or adult struggling with articulation, stuttering, or other speech difficulty?

 

Maybe you received therapy in school, but were unable to fully commit to the process and would like a second chance?
