Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy

Social use of language, pragmatic language, articulation and more

Developing language skills is associated with greater success academically, socially, and occupationally, as well as leading to improved mental health.

Some individuals who are still developing effective language can feel frustrated, and behaviors can express what words cannot.

A licensed and certified speech-language pathologist provides an individualized plan of care.

Developing communication skills is one of the most important elements to socializing and creating valuable relationships.

Speech-language pathologists help clients overcome barriers to communication and eating.

Speech-language therapy consists of specialized interventions to allow the client to gain appropriate communication, language, articulation, feeding and oral motor planning skills.

A speech and language evaluation will clearly identify areas of weakness and provide an assessment of your child’s skill level and age-based competency. Speech therapy can then address these areas of weakness and close the gap, with the goal of advancing your child’s speech to the age-appropriate range.


Speech-language pathologists provide evaluation and treatment for:

  • Receptive and expressive language delays
  • Pragmatic language
  • Social skills
  • Auditory processing
  • Autism and related disorders
  • Pre-linguistic skills
  • Paralinguistic
  • Speech apraxia
  • Articulation disorders
  • Stuttering/fluency
  • Oral motor/feeding
  • Cognition (attention, sequencing and problem solving)

Our Spectra Therapies team does not currently include a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).  Our expertise does include working on pragmatic language through talk therapy and social skills training.

When additional testing or speech therapy is warranted, we typically refer to the following clinics:
