Speech and Language Services

Verbal communication is the way that most learning occurs, whether your child is at home, in school, or playing with a friend. A problem in the areas of speech and language can interfere with a child’s learning and development, and early difficulties with oral language have been linked to later struggles with reading and writing; therefore, early detection, evaluation, and treatment is important.
