All services are based on the highest quality evidence that is available.

Because children make the most progress when goals and expectations are consistent, weekly therapy services are recommended. Caregivers are encouraged to attend therapy sessions to be an active part of their child’s therapy and learn how to use certain techniques at home. Therapy is provided in a child-friendly, play- and clinician-based environment where the child is free to play, laugh, and grow to his/her fullest potential.
Summer Speech Therapy
When school is out for summer break, your child’s speech services don’t have to be. Children who are in speech and language therapy at school may regress in their skills over the summer. Summer speech therapy can provide your child with one-on-one intervention that will meet your child’s unique needs. Call today to schedule weekly speech therapy during your child's summer break!
Academic & Related Service Support
Collaborating with your child's school-based team promotes generalization of the goals they are working on at school into your home. With having more than one eye on communicative treatment, both speech-language pathologists are able to develop and instruct on techniques for communication to determine the treatment that best meets your child's needs. As your ally in navigating special education services, your private SLP will consult with you regarding your child' Individualized Education Plan (IEP), assist with program modification, and provide resources for school staff.
