Speech and Language/Feeding Therapy

Children’s speech and language therapy addresses the communication needs of children. Speech therapists work on language comprehension and pronunciation skills. Alternative communication systems for nonverbal children can also be developed through speech therapy. Feeding therapy services assess and treat oral motor dysfunctions, taste and texture transition difficulties, and abnormal mealtime behaviors. These services are provided in conjunction with the appropriate medical staff consultation to ensure safe and healthy feeding patterns.
