Speech Therapy

Communication Is Key.

Our Speech Therapy Equips Your Child With the Tools They Need to Connect.

Speech therapy is one of the most important ways to help children prepare for the future. Children with untreated communication disorders struggle to succeed in even the most basic levels of education, and often resort to combative and uncooperative behaviors.

More than just helping your child pronounce words and form sentences, speech therapy improves reading, interpreting nonverbal clues, and other communication methods that extend beyond words. These skills enable your child to participate in and respond to the world around them with confidence.

What Are Some Signs That My Child Needs Speech Therapy?

1
You and other people have trouble understanding your child
2
Others think your child is younger because of the way they speak
3
Your child is being teased about the way they talk
4
Your child has a limited vocabulary compared to their peers Your child is struggling with literacy skills
5
Your child’s play seems unusual

The team at Scottsdale Pediatric Behavioral Services includes speech and language assessments in their overall evaluation of your child. They use specific tests to measure your child’s skills and identify areas of weakness or potential disorders.

How Can Speech Therapy Help My Child?

Speech and language disorders can have a long-lasting effect on your child’s life. They can interfere with their social development and ability to thrive academically. For example, while a lisp might seem cute in a three-year-old, that lisp isn’t going to help an older child succeed. It could lead to low self-confidence and underachievement throughout their life.

Speech therapy can help your child learn to communicate clearly and build the language skills they need to thrive in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.
