Speech and Language Services

The speech and language team supports the prevention, identification, assessment, treatment, and the (re)habilitation of speech, language and swallowing/feeding disorders.

Speech disorders include difficulty with production of speech sounds, stuttering (or fluency) and voice/resonance disorders.

Language disorders can affect the ability to understand others and/or express thoughts, ideas and feelings at a level consistent with developmental expectations.

Speech and language services may include:

  • Home programming 
  • Consultation to caregivers, professionals and supportive personnel who interact with the child 
  • Group or individual therapy combined with parent education and coaching 

Intervention focuses on skill development as well as on creating environments that promote optimal communication.
