LANGUAGE THERAPY

Language Therapy can address a child's ability to express themselves through spoken language or a child's ability to understand the language they receive from others.  

Expressive Language refers to your child's ability to express his or her thoughts, needs, and opinions.  It encompasses his/her ability to make a choice, ask a question, describe an event or argue a point of view.  We all need to communicate freely and effectively.  

 

 

Receptive Language refers to your child's ability to understand the words and connected language presented to him or her.  A child who has difficulty understanding may have difficulty attending to a book, following directions, or appropriately answering questions.  They may fall behind in academic tasks or withdraw socially.  Some children may have behavior issues at school and at home. 

Steps to take:

  1. Schedule a free 15 minute consultation.

  2. Schedule an evaluation.

  3. Review results of your evaluation and the treatment plan.

  4. Your child will attend therapy sessions once or twice each week.  

  5. You will be given a home carry-over plan.

ARTICULATION THERAPY

Speech articulation is the formation of clear and distinct sounds by your tongue, teeth, lips, and palate.  This is what carries your message across to another.

Does your child have a sound or sounds that he/she cannot seem to say correctly?  Maybe you can understand your child, but other people ask them to repeat or look to you to interpret what your child said.  


A speech sound delay or disorder is not best to leave to chance.  A speech pathologist can tell if your child's speech issues will likely correct themselves or not.  The good news is that speech therapy can make a world of difference.  Sound Speech & Hearing will evaluate your child and follow you for therapy until the speech issue is resolved or you have a plan moving forward.  

 

Steps to take:

  1. Schedule a free 15 minute consultation.

  2. Schedule an evaluation.

  3. Review results of your evaluation and the treatment plan.

  4. Your child will attend therapy sessions once or twice each week.  

  5. You will be given a home carry-over plan.
