The developmental pediatric conditions we can help treat with our online speech therapy programs consist of:
Apraxia of speech (verbal apraxia) is a motor speech disorder in which there is a breakdown in the signals sent from the brain to the mouth.
An articulation disorder is when an individual has difficulty properly pronouncing consonant and/or vowel sounds during speech production. Sounds that are spoken can be substituted, changed, added, or deleted.
Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulty with social skills, communication skills and repetitive behaviors. Individuals with autism often have sensory aversions to sounds, lights, textures and smells as well.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological motor disorder that affects children in their infancy or early childhood. It is characterized by difficulties in body movement and muscle coordination due to brain anomalies that control muscle movements.
Cognitive communication disorders are problems with communication that have an underlying cause in a cognitive deficit rather than a primary language or speech deficit.
A reading disorder involves the impairment of reading accuracy, speed, and/or comprehension. A writing disorder may involve difficulty organizing and expressing thoughts in writing or difficulty with grammatical structures.
Down syndrome is a genetic syndrome that causes intellectual impairment, limitations in adaptive skills, and anatomical and physiological differences in their mouth area. Children with Down syndrome commonly experience feeding and swallowing difficulties and have weak muscle tone (hypotonia) as well.
A child with a feeding disorder may have difficulty gathering and coordinating food in preparation to suck, chew or swallow. They may take a long time to eat or avoid eating certain foods or textures all together. Swallowing disorders, also known as dysphagia, can happen during the different phases of the swallowing process.
A language disorder causes significant impairment with the use and/or understanding of spoken or written words. Language should not be confused with speech. Speech is how we say sounds and words.
An oral motor disorder is characterized by oral motor weakness or impaired function of the tongue, lips, or jaw impacting speech and/or feeding.
A phonological disorder is when a child uses a specific error pattern in his or her speech. These specific error patterns are referred to as phonological processes.
Stuttering is a speech disorder that impacts fluency of speech.
We understand the necessity to help children develop to their full potential before it’s too late.
