Speech & Articulation Therapy
Did you know that by age 5, a child’s speech should be 100% intelligible or easily understood? If you always find yourself constantly asking your child “what’s that”, they may have structural or habitual patterns affecting their speech production. Speech therapy targets non age-appropriate distorted speech sounds and speech processes that impact the ability to communicate with others.
A child's language skills are important in their academic and personal lives. Receptive language is the ability to understand what is being said and expressive language is the ability to use effective language skills to convey thoughts, feelings, ideas, and converse with others in a logical, meaningful way. Some children have difficulty expressing ideas, telling a story, using age appropriate grammar-Expressive Language. Therapy targeting language can help children be more effective at communicating (listening/talking), reading, and writing.
