Family Speech and Language Services

How do I know if my child needs Speech Therapy?

Family Speech and Language Services can help you determine if your child is meeting milestones in speech and language or if they need some extra help. Our first appointment is free, in which we can answer your questions and determine if further assessment is recommended. If your child needs speech or language therapy, we provide thorough assessment and intervention services. We can consult with other team members such as your child’s teacher to help develop effective strategies. You can visit our welcoming clinic setting or we can come to your home or child care setting.

Why is  Speech and Language Therapy Important?

Children who are developing typically or are even ahead of their peers may have a delay or disorder in language and speech skills that can impact the way they communicate with their friends and family. You may see aggression, reluctance to talk or acting shy. Early intervention with speech and language therapy is important for maximizing development of communication skills to ensure general health in other skill sets.

What about my ‘big’ kid?

We see clients of all ages including preschoolers, school-aged kids, teens and adults who are struggling with their communication.

Is the cost covered?

Speech and Language therapy is usually covered in part by private health plans. We will provide you with receipts to claim reimbursement.
