Speech Language Therapy

As a certified speech-language pathologist, I provide 1:1 speech-language therapy for children and students who have a current speech and language evaluation that indicates significant delay(s) and meets the criteria for recommended therapy. If a child/student qualifies for speech-language therapy services through an evaluation their therapy may be paid through commercial insurance, Tefra, or Medicaid.

Delays speech-language therapy addresses:

  • receptive language - understanding information provided thorough sounds and words,  movement and gestures,  signs, symbols and pictures.

  • expressive speech - ability to  communicate our thoughts and feelings through words, gestures, signs, and/or symbols.

  • articulation - the ability to form and pronounce clear and distinct sounds in speech (when this skill is delayed it can negatively impact reading and spelling).

  • listening comprehension - ability to understanding and comprehend  spoken language.

  • reading comprehension - ability to process text, understand it's meaning, and integrate with what reader already knows.

  • spelling - the ability to write or name the letters of words correctly.

  • written expression - the ability to translate thoughts and ideas into written language.
