We Can Help.

A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds. That can mean a child has difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can’t understand what’s being said. That can also mean a child has trouble with fluency, like stuttering.

It can also be a problem with the pitch, volume or quality of the child’s voice. If you are concerned, talk to your doctor or call our office. All of our Speech-Language Pathologists are ASHA certified, state licensed and specialize in treating children.

Dysarthria

Dysarthria is caused by muscle weakness, making it hard for a child to talk. People may have trouble understanding what the child says.

Stuttering

Stuttering affects the fluency of speech and begins during childhood. It can impede communication and impact the child’s daily activities.

Tongue Thrust

Speech Sound Disorders

Voice

Tongue Thrust

A tongue thrust can cause problems with eating, drinking, and speaking.

Speech Sound Disorders

Your child may substitute another sound, leave sounds out, add sounds, or change sounds. It can be hard for others to understand your child, which inhibits conversation.

Voice

Some voice problems last for a short time while others may last longer. Voice problems can include vocal fold nodules and polyps, vocal fold paralysis, paradoxical vocal fold movement and spasmodic dysphonia
