Services

As a speech therapist, I offer the following services to children and their parents. While we usually meet in my clinic, home, daycare, or school visits are also available.

 Areas of Practice 

Language delay/disorders

Difficulty with grammar, vocabulary, sentence length, and following instructions - both in understanding and expressing thoughts.

 

Speech sounds/motor speech disorders

Difficulty with pronunciation, or with use of the jaw, lips, or tongue to support speech, chewing, or swallowing.

Socio-communication delay/disorders

Difficulty with social communication, including (but not limited to): eye contact, use and understanding of verbal and non-verbal interaction, manners, social conventions, and personal space.

 

Fluency/Stuttering

Difficulty with repetitions (“I – I – I – I –I want some…”), prolongations (“Ssssssssso I saw….”, ), or blockages in fluent speaking (when intended words gets ‘stuck’ in the throat).
