Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy
In our fast-paced world, effective listening, speaking and communication skills are essential. At PSLLC, we tailor our therapies to maximize each individual’s strengths and overcome weaknesses. For example, the speech therapy for toddlers we develop should be different from the program we outline for a child with auditory processing issues or that of someone with autism spectrum disorders. We will customize the therapy we deliver for your child. All of our therapists are nationally certified speech-language pathologists.
Our speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, and cognitive-communication disorders. If your child is struggling to meet their developmental or speech milestones, we can help. If you would like to learn more about specific milestones from toddlers through preschool, give us a call.
All of our therapists are nationally certified speech-language pathologists.
Language Therapy Challenges
Our speech language pathologists are experts in treating late-talking toddlers, children with articulation difficulties, as well as receptive and expressive language delays, language processing weaknesses, and reading comprehension challenges.
- Speech disorders occur when a person has difficulty producing speech sounds correctly or fluently or has problems with his or her voice or resonance.
- Language disorders occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language), or sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings (expressive language). Language disorders may be spoken or written and may involve the form (phonology, morphology, syntax), content (semantics), and/or use (pragmatics) of language in functional and socially appropriate ways.
- Social communication disorders occur when a person has trouble with the social use of verbal and nonverbal communication. These disorders may include problems (a) communicating for social purposes (e.g., greeting, commenting, asking questions), (b) talking in different ways to suit the listener and setting, and (c) following rules for conversation and story-telling.
- Cognitive-communication disorders include problems organizing thoughts, paying attention, remembering, planning, and/or problem-solving.
