Speech therapy can help if your child is struggling with the sounds of speech such as “r”, or if they display patterns such as dropping the last sounds in words. Therapy is also effective to address stuttering. An investment in speech therapy can help your child to be a clear communicator as they grow and explore the world.
Therapy for language can help your child with skills such as expressing thoughts clearly, being able to understand what others are saying, following directions, or engaging with peers. Speech therapy can also help with reading and writing, which are important skills for learning.

Supplement the services your child receives in school for even more success
