1 in 20 children have symptoms of a receptive and expressive language disorder which are typically evident before the age of 4. Receptive and expressive language delays can occur in children whether or not they have a medical reason for the delay. Early intervention is key in helping remediate these difficulties and preventing children from falling further behind on their speech and language development.

It is estimated that 8-9% of young children have an articulation disorder. These articulation disorders can easily result in reading and communication difficulties later.  It is important to address these difficulties as early as possible in order to prevent other delays.

Augmentative and Alternative Communication assists children that are unable to verbally communicate. Their inability to verbally communicate can stem from a variety of disorders including Apraxia, Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or other neurological impairments.

You may be asking, "When do I need to find a speech pathologist?"

A speech-language pathologist is a specialist trained to assist determining your child's habilitation needs with their speech and feeding/swallowing challenges. A child will typically develop in pace with their peers. However, if concerns beyond normal developmental signals are occurring repeatedly we offer guidance for your next steps that will bring you more clarity.

Feeding difficulties occur in 1% of children in the general population. However, feeding and swallowing difficulties increase in frequency in children who have other medical diagnoses.

It is estimated that Childhood Apraxia of Speech occurs in 1 in 1000 children. However, newer research indicates that this rate has been increasing.

Teletherapy provides parents a safe but effective way to receive speech therapy. Teletherapy is ideal for patients that are unable to receive face to face therapy services due to pandemics and accessibility.

As an early intervention speech language pathologist, I am typically one of the first people to provide therapy to a child. What we work on first will depend on the child’s level. Since my patients are very young, we do a lot of play-based activities. While some families understand the importance of play skills, some families do not. I frequently hear, “Why are you only playing with my child?”
