SPEECH THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
Communicate. Grow. Thrive
Services for Children
There are many reasons why a child might be referred for speech therapy. Many families are surprised to find out their child needs speech or language therapy, as they might attribute their child’s speech problems to not listening or having an adorable quirk or they might just want to take a wait-and-see approach for different reasons. As most children grow and as their speech matures, their developmental speech errors organically resolve. Sometimes, however, it doesn’t resolve on its own and timely intervention becomes important. Untreated speech and language problems might lead to difficulties in language-based reading/writing skills, problems in academic achievement, confidence, and social interaction. Also, the longer the incorrect speech pattern persists, the more difficult it is/longer it takes to correct.
At Resonate Therapy Solutions, we work with children with a wide range of speech and language skills. We see children with different neuro-divergent developmental patterns and medical diagnoses including: Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Social Communication disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Hearing impairments and Down Syndrome.
We also see children with timely milestones and typical development who might need speech therapy in select speech- language areas. A common scenario is that of a school -aged child presenting with errors in their speech sound production and needing articulation therapy. Or a toddler or preschooler with tongue thrust presenting with a prolonged thumb-sucking habit, accompanied by difficulties with chewing of food and persistent non-developmental speech errors, who might benefit from orofacial myofunctional therapy. The list goes on. If you have concerns, please give us a call.

Speech Sound Disorders (Articulation, Phonology, Dysarthria, Apraxia)
Receptive and Expressive Language Delays/ Disorders
