Oral-Motor Therapy

The SLP uses a variety of oral exercises — including facial massage and various tongue, lip, and jaw exercises — to strengthen the muscles of the mouth. The SLP also may work with different food textures and temperatures to increase a client’s oral awareness during eating and swallowing

Voice Therapy

Therapy addresses problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what’s being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a client when speaking

Fluency Therapy

Fluency is also termed stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, repetitions (st-st-stuttering), or prolonged sounds and syllables. Fluency therapy is a dynamic process using various strategies to minimize events of dysfluency

Language Therapy

Language is structured and elicited through playing, talking, and/or using pictures, books, objects, or events to encourage language development. The therapist may also model correct pronunciation and use repetition exercises to build language skills

  • Receptive language clinician works to strengthen client’s ability to process and understand language
