What is Speech Therapy?
Speech and Language therapy incorporates all aspects of speech and language development. A Speech-Language Pathologist is a licensed professional who is trained in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a variety of communication disorders. They help children with various speech and language disorders and assist with articulation disorders, communication challenges, pragmatic language, fluency, oral motor abilities and receptive (what a child understands) and expressive (what a child says) language disorders. Cognitive components such as problem solving and reasoning are also addressed by speech therapists. Our Speech Therapists utilize a variety of treatment techniques in a safe, fun, play based environment to achieve age appropriate functional goals.
At STARS Pediatric Therapy, we believe every child shines and has potential to play, move, learn, and develop into a happy and functional individual. We provide children, newborn to age 12 years, with quality therapy programs addressing each child’s individual needs. Our licensed pediatric therapists assist with the diagnosis, treatment and management of a variety of congenital, developmental, learning challenged, neuromuscular skeletal or acquired disorders.
