The Speech-Language-Hearing Center (SLHC) provides comprehensive speech-language-communication assessments for toddlers, children, and youth. In some instances, families come to the Center for a second opinion of their child’s speech-language-communication profile of strengths and weaknesses, diagnosis and/or intervention recommendations.
Speech-language therapy for children addresses language disorders (both comprehension and oral language), cognition (memory and attention), speech sound disorders (lisp, childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), phonological impairment, /r/ errors), stuttering, written language, and social-pragmatic disorders. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in determining intervention goals. Family members may observe sessions and frequently participate in speech-language intervention at the SLHC.
