Development Of Communication And Oral Skills
Pediatric Speech Therapy supports the development of communication and oral motor skills in children. Areas for concern include expressive and receptive language disorders, auditory processing disorder, weak social skills and feeding/swallowing difficulties. Our speech therapists utilize treatment techniques to improve a child’s ability to understand others, enhance language fluency, articulation and communication of their needs, as well as eating and swallowing safely. Strategies and techniques are shared with the parents so that the skills can continue to improve at home.
