SPEECH THERAPY

What is Speech Therapy?

Speech therapy helps improve children's verbal and nonverbal communication skills. Your child is one-of-a-kind, and his or her developmental needs are unique. At POTS our speech-language pathologists  work with each child and family in a motivating play setting to provide parents and caregivers with the education and tools needed to help your child meet his/her potential. Together, we can:

  • Help you connect with your child through language and non-verbal communication

  • Help your child succeed in academic environments

  • Improve your child’s communication and social abilities with children and adults

  • Reduce frustration due to difficulty understanding language or being understood

  • Help your child manage feeding and swallowing
     

What is a Speech-Language Pathologist?

A speech-language pathologist is a professional who specializes in working with individuals to improve their communication and feeding skills. In pediatrics, a speech-language pathologist works to develop and maximize the child’s speech, language, and feeding skills in a motivating play setting in order to increase their independence and ability to communicate.
