Accent Modification

You may have a desire to change your accent. It is possible to produce sounds differently with hard work and practice. This process is often called accent modification and can be made easier with the assistance of a licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP)

Apraxia

Apraxia of speech is a motor-planning disorder in which an individual has the language capacity to talk, but the signals between his or her brain and mouth muscles are not sent correctly. This results in unclear speech, no discernible pattern of errors, and sometimes difficulty producing much speech at all.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

While every individual is unique, autism typically affects a person’s communication abilities and social interactions. Whether your child’s autism is mild, with small impacts to their day-to-day life, or a disability that requires full-time care, educating yourself is one of the most important steps you can take to support your child’s growth and development.

Early Childhood Development

While there is a range of average when we consider developmental milestones and ages of acquisition, being safe rather than sorry when it comes to early speech and language development can be crucial. From birth to age 3, a child’s brain develops faster than it will at any other point in their lifetime. Countless studies have shown that providing speech and language intervention earlier in a child’s lifetime will result in better outcomes.

Language Disorders

A language disorder occurs when an individual has difficulty understanding and/or using one or more of the five domains of language (semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology, pragmatics). When deficits in oral language occur without an individual also demonstrating an intellectual disability, sensory or hearing impairment, global developmental delay, motor deficits, or other mental disorder, it is known as a Specific Language Impairment.

Reading Readiness

Unlike speech and language, which is typically learned without direct teaching, reading is a skill that must be taught directly. Learning to read has many prerequisite skills which may be impacted by skills related to speech and language. A speech-language pathologist (SLP) may be an excellent resource for families who are concerned with their child’s reading readiness.

Speech Delay

Children progress at different rates, and determining whether your child is just a late bloomer or needs professional help isn’t always easy. We put together this informational guide to help you better understand speech delay, common signs and symptoms, how it’s treated, and more.

Social Skills

Communication is always between two or more people, and there are many factors that can change how well an underlying message is understood. Cultural, geographic, and situational factors can change by the minute in some cases, and social skills help people navigate these changes and continue communicating clearly.

Speech Sound Disorders

“Speech sound disorders” refers to many different and potentially co-occurring difficulties in motor production, perception, or phonological representation of speech sounds. The outcome of a speech sound disorder is often less clear speech, which disrupts how well the speaker’s message is understood.

Stuttering and Fluency

Fluency disorders require a skilled speech-language pathologist to manage and treat. While there is no “cure” for stuttering, stuttering modification techniques and fluency shaping can help individuals learn to manage their stutter and communicate with greater ease and less frustration.

Voice Disorders

A voice disorder occurs when an individual’s pitch, vocal quality, resonance, or loudness are inappropriate for their age, gender, or cultural background. When a person feels that their voice does not meet their daily needs, they may pursue treatment.
