Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy

Mellisa provides Speech and Language therapy services for children of all ages with a wide variety of diagnoses.  If you have concerns regarding your child's articulation skills or language development, please consult the Resources page for information on general developmental milestones.  Children who demonstrate misarticulation or substitution of sounds, are not developing vocabulary at the rate that would be expected, have difficulty with understanding/following directions, or are unable to express themselves with age appropriate sentences may benefit from an evaluation to determine the presence of a communication disorder.

Pediatric communication disorders that may require a Speech and Language evaluation include the following:

  • Apraxia of Speech

  • Phonological Disorders

  • Articulation Disorders

  • Pragmatic Language Disorders (social communication) 

  • Voice disorders

  • Tongue Thrust
