Online and In-Person Speech Therapy for Children with Fluency Disorders

Fluency disorders occur when there is an interruption in the flow, rate, and effort of speech production. Fluency disorders are an umbrella term used to describe both stuttering and cluttering disorders.  A stuttering disorder is characterized by different disfluencies such as repetitions of sounds, syllables, and monosyllabic words, prolongations of consonants, and blocks.  On the other hand, cluttering disorders are characterized by rapid and/or irregular speech rate, atypical pauses, collapsing syllables, and lack of awareness of communication challenges.  If your child presents with any of these symptoms and you have concerns, don't hesitate to contact me for a free consultation.

Online and In-Person Speech Therapy for Children with Language disorders

Many children experience communication difficulties at some point in their lives.  While some of these children will eventually catch up to their peers, others may continue to face challenges.  A child may be diagnosed with a receptive language disorder if they have difficulty understanding what others have said. They may be diagnosed with an expressive language disorder if they struggle to express themselves effectively.  Some children may receive a diagnosis of both expressive and receptive language disorders (often referred to as mixed language disorder) if they encounter challenges with both understanding and expressing language.  If you suspect your child has a language disorder or would like to know more, feel free to reach out to me.

 

 

 

Online and In-Person Speech Therapy for Children with Executive Function Challenges

Executive function skills refer to a set of abilities that enable a child to plan, focus attention, recall instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully.  These skills play a crucial role in academic achievement and social interaction.  When a child's executive function skills are underdeveloped, they may struggle with organizing tasks, managing time, or controlling impulses.  To learn more about  how we can help your child overcome these challenges, please contact me.

Online and In-Person Speech Therapy for Children with Articulation disorders

An articulation disorder is a common issue that occurs when a child cannot produce certain sounds.  A child may produce a "w" sound instead of "r," or they may have an unclear "s" (also known as a lisp) instead of a clear "s."  To learn more about how we can help your child overcome these challenges, schedule a free consultation.
