Speech and Language Therapy

At SLS it is our goal to provide excellence in all of the clinical services that we provide to our clients and their families. We begin our services with an initial 30 minute consultation to meet and discuss goals, expectations, and therapeutic approaches. After initial consultation a comprehensive standardized evaluation or informal assessment may be recommended to generate treatment plan.  Each treatment plan is personalized to meet the unique needs of each client. 

Our therapists work with both the child and the family to ensure carryover and facilitate progress as soon as possible.  We strongly believe in the partnership between the families and our professionals and thus, we are known for our successful collaborative model.

We strive to make the speech and language therapy experience not only beneficial, but one that is filled with fun and excitement while learning occurs. Our services demonstrate care and commitment to all of our clients.
