Our Speech-language Pathologists help diagnose and treat children who have speech disorders (difficulty producing sounds), language disorders (difficulty understanding others or expressing themselves), and swallowing disorders. These certified professionals also help children with autism and aid preschool children with language development. They can also assist in identifying, diagnosing, and treating voice disorders (hoarseness, vocal fatigue), swallowing disorders (choking, aspiration), and cognitive deficits in adults.
