Speech-Language Pathologists conduct evaluations and customize treatment programs to improve communication disorders such as: articulation, receptive/expressive language, literacy (reading/writing/phonics/comprehension), stuttering/fluency, voice, oral-motor skills, swallowing, feeding, social skills, and hearing loss.

Physical Therapists conduct evaluations and customize treatment programs to improve gross motor skills, balance/coordination, endurance, muscle performance, and posture. Physical Therapists focus on pain management, general strengthening, range of motion and gross motor functioning and other physical issues relating to: walking/gait training, evaluations for specialized/adaptive equipment, gross motor delays (walking, crawling, kicking, throwing, climibing, jumping), torticollis, and neuromuscular deficits.
How services are implemented:
- A referral is received from the primary care physician.
- A comprehensive evaluation is completed by a certified therapist (Speech, Occupational or Physical Therapist).
- A treatment plan is created, in writing, to facilitate the improvement of speech/language skills, motor skills and/or sensory disorders.
- Families are involved every step of the way, being shown how to use newly learned skills in their home and/or school environments.
- Discontinuation of therapy services occurs when age-appropriate skills are achieved or when improvement is no longer evident.
