Early Intervention speech-language therapy

Early Intervention

We specialize in building language through play! Skilled speech-language therapy can help infants and toddlers engage with the world around them by understanding and using: 

  • Gestures and sign language

  • Play sounds

  • Visuals

  • New words 

Children need consistency and repetition to learn new skills, so parental involvement is key to great progress.

Parent Coaching for speech-language therapy

Parent Coaching

We help caregivers learn and practice the techniques that we use within our sessions. This allows families to confidently support their child’s speech and language development at home, in-between therapy sessions! Parent coaching focuses on: 

  • Building language through play

  • Using communication strategies in daily routines

We provide parents with resources for home practice, as well as access to their child’s online progress notes and reports.

Private speech therapy

Speech Therapy

We help children effectively communicate by addressing speech sound production for challenging sounds and sound combinations. We will target common words that apply to their everyday life. Our evidence-based approaches improve:

  • Overall speech clarity

  • Accuracy of sound production

  • Muscle coordination and strength for speech

  • Rate and rhythm of speech

  • Fluency (stuttering) 

Speech therapy incorporates fun, child-led activities to keep your child interested and engaged. 

Private language therapy

Language Therapy

We help children develop and practice language skills in a variety of play-based and focused activities. Sessions build essential skills such as:

  • Answering questions

  • Following directions

  • Telling stories

  • Combining words into complete sentences

  • Increasing vocabulary

  • Overall ability to express wants and needs

Language therapy can improve a child’s comprehension, expression, and overall academic success in school.

Kid Eating Meal

Feeding Therapy

We are committed to developing a comprehensive understanding of your child's needs. Feeding therapy focuses on motor planning for chewing, sucking, and/or swallowing, sensory processing, and picky eating. We understand the importance of providing the skills that our clients need to eat safely, sustain adequate nutrition, and enjoy mealtimes. Our approach (e.g. SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) Approach to Feeding; The SOFFI Method) focuses on targeting the following:

  • Picky eating and food refusal

  • Breastfeeding support

  • Oral Motor Skills (chewing, swallowing, lip closure)

  • Sensory Processing for Food Intolerance

  • Oral Feeding in Infants

Feeding therapy would address a child's poor eating habits/attitudes, unsafe swallowing, and any nutritional concerns.

Little Girl

Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder in which the child has difficulties connecting sounds and syllables into longer words as well as a presence of disturbance with rate and intonation. Depending on the severity, sessions will target the following:

  • Prosody (intonation, rate, rhythm)

  • Motor planning

  • Speech Intelligibility

Immediate treatment is highly recommended for a child with moderate to severe CAS since it can take some time to improve those skills.

Teletherapy

Online speech-language therapy has been shown to be as effective as in-person therapy, but with more flexibility and convenience. By meeting online, parents can forgo the commute to therapy and enjoy more valuable time at home with their families. Teletherapy is now available to all families in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Texas!
