Pediatric Speech Therapy
One parent shared her joy the day her child said, “Now people can understand me when I talk!” Imagine our joy here at the S. June Smith Center, knowing we had a role to play in that child’s success.
We are happy to announce that we are now offering private speech and language therapy services to our community.
In addition to participating in Early Intervention (Birth-K), the S. June Smith Center is responding to the needs of our community by offering Speech Therapy for children under the age of 8.
This program is located at our Prince Street office (across from Clipper Stadium). Onsite parking, a secure building and a staff of highly trained speech therapists makes this the ideal choice for young children.
Intervention is provided for a variety of disorders, including speech disorders, and receptive and expressive language disorders. Many of our staff members have interest and expertise in areas such as apraxia and suspected childhood apraxia of speech.
Parents and caregivers are invited to play an active role during the process. Their input is used to develop goals that will be functional for the child. Ongoing family education is provided, as well as activities that can be used in the home. Most therapy sessions are one-on-one, allowing for focused and intensive session.
Our experienced staff of therapists continue to receive education, allowing them to provide the highest standards of care. You can check out their information in the Early Childhood section of our website www.ourexcentia.org
