Speech/Language Therapy

Speech-Language Therapy focuses specifically on how children communicate.

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) assess, diagnose and treat the various skills needed for communication. These include:

  • Articulation and phonology
  • Auditory processing
  • Cognition
  • Executive functioning skills
  • Fluency
  • Language expression—Verbal and augmentative/alternative
  • Oral motor movement
  • Pragmatic-social language skills
  • Reading and spelling
  • Writing

IPI speech-language pathologists also address feeding and swallowing concerns including:

  • Oral-Motor Skills
  • Sensory Aversion
  • Medical Complex Feeding needs including decreasing feeding tube dependency

Our SLPs are known for working together with the family to develop dynamic and functional goals for a child to be successful. We believe that helping a family to communicate with their child is just as important as giving a child vocabulary and teaching them sentence structures. Let our therapists support your child throughout their development in the areas of language development, reading and comprehension, social skills and feeding. We will work with your doctor, school and other therapists to generalize skills across your child’s natural environments.
