PROVIDING THE RIGHT SOLUTIONS TO THE BEHAVIORAL, EMOTIONAL, COMMUNICATION AND LEARNING CHALLENGES OF OUR CLIENTS.

Speech and Language Services

Verbal communication is the way that most learning occurs, whether your child is at home, in school, or playing with a friend. A problem in the areas of speech and language can interfere with a child’s learning and development, and early difficulties with oral language have been linked to later struggles with reading and writing; therefore, early detection, evaluation, and treatment is important.
