Speech Therapy helps a wide range of conditions, including articulation concerns, voice quality and loudness, stuttering, language, apraxia, reading, social communication, and swallowing and feeding difficulties. We help people with a wide variety of disorders including Parkinson’s, strokes, autism, down syndrome, traumatic brain injuries, dementia, developmental delays, and much, much more.
Although all Speech-Language Pathologists have a Masters Degree level education, we all differ with certifications, years of experience and additional trainings, all focused on specific areas of interest. Some Speech Therapists focus on treating apraxia, others voice.
Families want the very best for their loved ones. Choosing a Speech Pathologist with specialized experience and additional training can often make a difference in the quality of treatments provided. FINDING the best speech therapy to meet YOUR needs is the challenge. That’s where Speech Therapy Connect can help.
