Speech & Language Services
Speech and language pathology focuses on improving all areas involved in communication. Speech language pathologists evaluate, diagnose, and treat anything that impedes a child’s ability to communicate, whether the area of speech or language. Communication encompasses not only the child’s ability to express their wants and needs, but also to comprehend and process the language or wants and needs of others.
