Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-Language Pathologists at Children’s Therapy Corner work with children to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and feeding/swallowing disorders. We will determine your child’s needs and then establish the best approach to facilitate your child’s communication abilities.

We can help your child with accurate production of speech sounds, enhance ability to express ideas and intentions, use language appropriately for social communication, facilitate use of alternative communication (AAC) systems, and/or increase feeding capabilities. Treatment is designed to enhance their abilities across all situations and environments.
