The Latest Speech Therapy Techniques are being used Right Here on the South Shore
What is Speech Therapy?
Successful communication involves not only the ability to express oneself, but the ability to attend to communication partners, understand the verbal and nonverbal messages sent by others, and to use language appropriately across a variety of settings. Speech Therapy is an intervention focused on improving all aspects of communication including speech (sound production, vocal quality, fluency), language understanding, language expression, and social communication. Pediatric speech therapy at South Shore Therapies is designed to assess and treat a variety of communication disorders in a fun and nurturing environment.
During your initial visit, our pediatric speech-language pathologists will evaluate your child’s current communication skills. If treatment is recommended, we will work with you to develop a plan of treatment which will target the problem areas identified during your child’s assessment.
Our Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists evaluate and treat speech and language difficulties related to:
- Receptive and Expressive Language Delays
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Social Pragmatic Deficits
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Executive Function Deficits
- Articulation or Phonological Disorders (inability to produce sounds)
- Language-Based Learning Disabilities
- Down Syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities
- Emotional/Mood Disorders
- Voice Disorders
- Nonverbal Communication (both low and high-tech AAC devices implemented)
