Speech-Language Pathology Services

Our speech-language pathologists provide evaluations for children from birth to age 21. Short-term treatment sessions may be available on a limited basis. Our team cares for a wide range of conditions, which may include:

  • Receptive language delays or disorders (difficulty understanding others)
  • Expressive language delays or disorders (difficulty using language to talk to others)
  • Social-communication disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders
  • Cognitive-linguistic deficits, such as brain injury
  • Articulation and phonological disorders (difficulty producing speech sounds correctly)
  • Motor speech disorders, such as apraxia (difficulty coordinating muscles to produce speech)
  • Voice disorders (problems with the voice, such as vocal cord dysfunction, hoarseness or loss of voice)
  • Resonance disorders, such as speech problems that may occur for children with cleft palate
  • Feeding and swallowing disorders
  • Fluency disorders, such as stuttering
  • Severe communication disorders, who may benefit from augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)

It is also important to have your child's hearing evaluated to rule out hearing loss. To schedule a hearing evaluation, please contact our Pediatric Audiology team.
