Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy

Speech Language Pathology is a health profession that helps people across the lifespan to be successful communicators. Communication with others, both non-verbal and verbal, is a key component to our everyday life. Communication includes both speech (the production of sound) and language (the expression and understanding of words and sentences).

 

At Mitchell’s Place, we provide pediatric speech therapy conducted by licensed and experienced professionals. We provide individualized therapeutic intervention through PLAY to help kids improve their communication, engagement with others, and joint attention. Engagement with others and joint attention are a vital component of overall communication. As pediatric speech therapists, we work hard to develop engagement and joint attention through play to build rapport and capitalize on the intrinsic value in communication.  

Speech therapy can help children develop the following skills:

  • Improvement in expressive (what is said) and receptive (what is understood) language skills
  • Improvement of the production of speech sounds (Motor planning, Articulation, Phonology)
  • Improvement of speech fluency
  • Promotion of pragmatic/social skills and development of play skills
  • Improvement of oral motor strength for speech, eating, and swallowing
  • Training with augmentative communication devices

At Mitchell’s Place, we strive to provide individualized and comprehensive services. We work with families, caregivers, and teachers to develop a plan that meets the needs of your child and family. Mitchell’s Place was founded with the mission to provide collaborative services. We work very closely with our other professionals in occupational therapy, ABA, psychology, and education to provide holistic, comprehensive services for each child.

 

Speech therapy services include standardized evaluations as well as treatment. Our services can be performed one-on-one or through one of our offered group programs depending on the child’s needs. If you think your child needs speech therapy services.
