Speech Therapy

...help develop your child's communication skills.

What is Speech Therapy?

Speech Therapy helps children overcome speech impairments (such as stuttering and lisps).  This type of therapy uses communication aids to help children develop better articulation and communication skills.  Activities such as tongue exercises, speech practice, and use of visual aids help children to correct speech disorders. Speech therapy is available in Spanish.

Language Development in Children

 Children follow roughly the same language development pattern, as described below.  If your child seems to be behind, please contact Professional Early Intervention to see how we can help.  Your child's language development is vital, and early intervention will help him or her to stay on the right track.
