Speech-Language Pathology in Dallas-Fort Worth & Houston

Speech Therapy Services

Speech-language therapy is a vital intervention for children who experience delays or difficulties in communication. Children with speech disorders, such as speech delays and articulation disorders, language disorders, stuttering, voice disorders, auditory processing disorders, eating or swallowing, and social communication difficulties can benefit from speech-language therapy.

In speech therapy, your child might get to play games that make their muscles strong, like blowing bubbles or pretending to be a lion roaring! Our therapists utilize a number of puzzles and toys to help kids learn new words and sounds. We believe speech therapy should always be fun, as your child's communication skills are key to lifelong success.
