Preschool 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.

If you have concerns about your child's speech and language development, you can complete the Communication Checkup for an assessment.

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.
