Pediatric Speech Therapy

Pediatric Speech Therapy

We go above and beyond when it comes to the treatment of our young patients. Our goal is to make their experience as close to “playtime” as possible. Our specially trained speech-language pathologists work one-on-one with pediatric patients to help them, encourage progress, and form lasting bonds. Our speech-language pathologists have extensive experience working with children to improve feeding, communication, articulation, voice, fluency, and cognitive function.

We offer individualized evaluations and treatment to help each child reach their full potential in the following areas:

  • Articulation and Phonological Disorders
  • Expressive Communication Delay
  • Language Disorders
  • Swallowing and Feeding Disorders
  • Picky Eaters
  • Selective Mutism
  • Fluency (Stuttering)
  • Literacy and Pre-Literacy Skills
  • Augmentative Communication Device Training
  • Auditory Processing Disorders
  • Voice Disorders
  • Pragmatic/Social Language Disorders

Literacy Evaluations

When do we refer for literacy? When a child is at least in kindergarten, preferably second semester, and struggles to learn letter names and sounds, memorize sight words, or sound out simple 3-letter words (bat, pet, log), or when a child is in first grade or up and is struggling unusually and unexpectedly to read, spell, and/or get ideas into sentences on paper.

For children with developmental delays, communication challenges, and other disabilities, speech therapy can improve the ability of children to succeed functionally, socially, and academically. Our therapists have experience working with a large variety of pediatric conditions and needs. Pediatric services are offered at select Ivy Rehab clinics.
