Services We Provide
We have a team of experienced therapists who treat both adult AND pediatric clients.
Treatment programs often focus on:
- How speech sounds are made.
- Articulation issues stem from difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that they cannot be understood
- Use of vocal folds and breathing to produce sounds.
- Problems with pitch, volume or quality of voice can distract from what is being said. They can also cause pain or discomfort when speaking.
- The rhythm of speech.
- Flow of speech can be interrupted by abnormal stoppages, repetitions and prolonged sounds and syllables, as with stuttering.
