What is Speech-Language Therapy?
Speech-Language Therapy is a profession that specializes in the evaluation and treatment of disorders and delays that limit a child’s ability to communicate either verbally or non-verbally and/or demonstrate age-appropriate feeding skills. The Speech-Language Therapists at Pathways specialize in remediating and developing these delays with highly individualized intervention programs.
