“PLAY GIVES CHILDREN A CHANCE TO PRACTICE WHAT THEY ARE LEARNING.”
Early Language Therapy
Several areas are addressed including but not limited to: early language development (1-5 yrs), understanding and expressing language, social skills, play skills, and phonological awareness. A language evaluation is conducted in order to assess current level of skills.
Speech & Oromyofunctional Therapy
Speech therapy teaches your child how to produce age-level sounds in words and connected speech. Oromyofunctional therapy is completed when dysfunction of the lips, jaw, or tongue impacts speech production. A speech evaluation is conducted in order to assess if a delay or disorder is present.
Pre- & post-frenectomy care for lip, tongue, & cheek ties
An infant / pediatric functional evaluation is completed to assess impact of ties on swallowing and speech. If frenectomy surgery is recommended, families are provided training to prepare the mouth before the surgery as well as exercises afterwards to ensure optimal wound healing of tongue, lip, and/or cheek tie revisions.
