Language Delays & Disorders

Language disorders are difficulties in understanding and/or producing spoken and written language. These difficulties can have a profound impact on children’s academic, social, and emotional development.

A child may be slow to talk, have a diagnosed condition that is known to affect communication, or their communication disorder may not be identified until they reach school. We provide assessment and treatment to children whose language problems stem from many causes and vary in severity.

Infants/Toddlers/Late Talkers

We offer individualized services to infants and toddlers due to delays in reaching early language milestones. If your child is slow to talk or frustrated trying to communicate our services can help. We also offer a group experience for young children:

  • Preschool Express is a group program designed for preschoolers at risk for language delay, including late talkers, children with specific language impairment (SLI), or children with hearing loss. Interactions with supportive adults and peers are designed to increase turn taking, improve vocabulary, increase attention to task and topic, increase frequency of talking, and improve question comprehension.

School-Aged Children

We offer individualized treatment services to school-aged children due to language disorders to help them achieve in school and be more successful in communicating in social situations.
