Assessment and Treatment areas include:
I primarily treat children struggling with Speech Sound Disorders such as Childhood Apraxia of Speech, and Articulation Disorders.
These are children who may:
have difficulty producing a specific sound (e.g. R or S)
substitute one sound with another (e.g. T for K - as in "tootie" for "cookie")
sound unclear or "slushy" in their speech
struggle to make their speech understood - particularly with unfamiliar listeners.
