Speech therapy is generally helpful in all voice conditions. Voice issues in children can be due to vocal misuse (yelling excessively), medical reasons (like reflux) or other neurological conditions. Assessment in collaboration with your ENT or otolaryngolist will determine the suspected cause of voice problems. Techniques to encourage comfortable voicing are taught to the child. Our therapists also include parents in instruction so that they can help the child practice at home.

Our LSVT Loud trained therapists are also able to provide this treatment for patients who might benefit, commonly children with CP or Down Syndrome.

One of the best ways for children to learn is through play. Through Community Based Rehabilitative Services (CBRS) a child is guided through developmental milestones by a Child Development Specialist (CDS). A CDS is a generalist with the ability to work on all areas of development, including but not limited to: communication, motor skills, self-help skills, social skills and cognitive skills. CBRS targets children birth to 3 years of age who are enrolled in the Early Intervention program, with the intention of helping them reach their full potential. This is achieved through working closely with parents and caregivers on their personal goals for the family.
