Personal attention and guidance.
Whether your child has difficulty talking, understanding, or swallowing, our skilled speech-language therapists offer compassionate support and coaching to help your child improve. We create a plan to help them succeed and support them as long as they need us. We work with children and families and focus on all areas of your child’s development — physical, emotional, social, and academic.
Focus on empowerment and success.
We know your child can succeed — and we make sure they know they can, too. Our speech-language therapists are experts at helping kids learn new skills. We develop a treatment plan to give your child the best results and offer support and encouragement along the way.
We care for children of all ages, from infants to adolescents. As a pediatric academic medical center, we have the expertise to treat even the most complex speech, language, and swallowing disorders. Our therapists use the latest, child-friendly approaches to empower and help your child succeed.
