Do you have questions about your child’s speech and language development?

Child playing with Legos

We offer FREE speech screenings to help identify children who are falling within the typical range of development as well as identify those in need of more extensive evaluation. Research has consistently proven that early detection is critical. Appropriate for children starting at 2 years of age, basic screenings examine articulation, hearing, and language. 

  • Are you concerned that your child is not developing language skills as quickly as other children?
  • Do you have questions about your preschooler’s articulation development?
  • Do you want reassurance that your child is on track with their language development
Speech Evaluation

Depending on your child’s age, a speech evaluation may include a combination of formal testing and informal conversation and play. Our approach to speech therapy, like other rehabilitation programs, involves the family. It’s crucial to the success of your child that you take an active role, and we’ll guide you every step of the way.
