Speech Therapy Services


Pediatric Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) are practitioners who deliver skilled speech therapy services to children and their families. They treat children with problems with speech, language, thinking, and swallowing. They work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders. Pediatric SLPs work with children with a wide range of diagnoses from infancy through adolescence. The SLP works in close partnership with the child’s family and other members of the rehabilitation team in order to establish a personalized treatment plan and work towards goals that are meaningful and important to the child and the family.

Caregiver education about a child’s therapy needs takes place within the the family’s routine and incorporates the family’s own resources.

Consistency & Follow-Through

Family involvement can lead to increased consistency and maximize results. Many families also notice improved follow-through with strategies, as the family takes an active role in the therapeutic process. 

No Need for Transportation

The stress of transportation to and from a clinic is eliminated, which is a major barrier to care for many families.

Incorporated into Daily Life

Home-based therapists can ensure that equipment and strategies are appropriate and able to be implemented into the family’s daily life, which is important for many families and children.

Familiar & Natural Environment

Children seen in their home may be more relaxed since it is a familiar and comfortable environment. For children who function best this way, this can lead to increased participation and better outcomes.

Similarly, learning new skills in a natural environment can be more beneficial than in a simulated environment for many children.
