"The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance, and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning."
Speech sound production, or articulation, errors can severely impact a person’s ability to communicate and make themselves understood. Articulation therapy may be appropriate for clients of any age and with many different diagnoses, including articulation delay, apraxia, and dysarthria.
There are two different types of language, expressive and receptive. Expressive language refers to a person’s ability to express themselves, make requests, and communicate wants and needs, as well as appropriately use grammar. Receptive language refers to a person’s ability to understand language, learn, and follow directions.
Stuttering can affect people of all ages and can be characterized by repetitions of words and syllables, prolongations, blocks, and other secondary behaviors. We teach our clients skills to help improve their speech fluency and coach families to help support their loved ones.
Cognitive-communication difficulties can include disruptions in verbal and nonverbal communication, including listening, speaking, gesturing, reading, and writing in the form, function, and use of language.
VOICE & ACCENT
If you’re tired of repeating yourself so that people can understand you, we can help you modify or reduce your accent to increase your intelligibility and English fluency. We provide voice coaching and education regarding care, quality, projection, pronunciation, rate, and tempo.
Have a picky-eater or trouble swallowing? We can help support more balanced nutrition by increasing the range of foods. We make treatment for eating and swallowing enjoyable and applicable to daily life by experimenting with cooking and recipes in our therapy kitchen.
