Speech-language therapy includes the evaluation and treatment of speech, language, cognitive and feeding/swallowing skills. Although the terms speech and language are often used interchangeably, it is important to understand the difference between them.
- Articulation disorders
- Apraxia of speech
- Fluency disorders (including stuttering)
- Voice disorders
- Feeding/swallowing disorders including orofacial myofunctional disorders
Language is a symbolic, rule governed system used to convey a message. Symbols can include spoken/written words or gestures, while the “rules” of language include appropriate use of syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology and pragmatics. Language disorders include:
- Receptive language disorders
- Expressive language disorders
Although auditory processing disorder is considered an auditory disorder, language processing skills are usually affected and therefore targeted in evaluation and treatment.
In addition to speech-language therapy, we also provide services to actors and professionals including:
- Accent reduction
- Voice training
- Personal communication and public speaking coaching
