Speech Therapy Clinic

The Speech and Language Therapists at Children's Hospital & Medical Center specialize in the evaluation and treatment of children from birth to age 21.

From birth, children learn to communicate in a variety of ways including through eye gazes, gestures and vocalizations. For children who are delayed in their communication skills, intervention can begin at less than one year of age. Improved ability to communicate reduces frustration as children become older.

Speech and language therapy helps children improve their communication skills verbally, by using gestures, sign language or the use of augmentative devices. An important part of intervention includes teaching parents and caregivers skills to stimulate their child's communication skills.
