Help your child maximize their potential and achieve success both in the classroom and with their peers!
Most children develop speech and language skills within a specific age range. A child who takes longer to learn a skill may have a delay or disorder.
Speech-language pathologists, or SLPs, can help your child reach their fullest potential. Many children with mild to moderate speech and language disorders do not qualify for school-based speech therapy services. There are many ways an SLP can help your child achieve success in school.
Pediatric speech therapy services include a targeted assessment and intervention for a broad range of speech, language, voice, executive functioning and swallowing difficulties.
If you think your child has difficulties with speech or language, call our office at (401) 743-0231.
We will assist you in finding the help you need, even if it’s a referral outside of our practice.
See below for a list of common pediatric speech and language disorders.
Adults may need speech therapy for a variety of reasons, including:
- Dementia (Individuals with dementia often benefit from cognitive-linguistic intervention)
- Vocal fold injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neurological illnesses such as Parkinsons, ALS or Huntington’s.
SLPs also provide feeding and swallowing therapy to individuals with impaired chewing or swallowing function.
Some adults may elect to participate in speech therapy to reduce accents or to remediate lingering childhood speech impairments like lisps or stuttering.
Our adult speech therapy program provides evaluation and treatment for individuals struggling with speech, language, voice, and cognitive-linguistic function as well as swallowing difficulties and disorders.
