General Speech and Language Therapy
Communication is a basic human necessity. When there is a problem with it, you may worry about how it will affect you or a loved one’s future success. We offer speech therapy focused on improving the articulation of speech sounds, comprehension and expression of language, and more.
Augmentative & Alternative Communication
Many people with severe speech or language issues rely on AAC (Augmentative & Alternative Communication) to replace or supplement spoken language. When you seek an AAC evaluation with us, we’ll work with you or your child to find the best platform or system, and you’ll then receive customized therapy with that system. You can have a voice with your tailored AAC!
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Children diagnosed with autism often experience difficulty with social communication and interaction. At Hearing and Speech Connection, we provide services that capitalize on strengths and address weaknesses related to the unique features of ASD. Through individual or group therapy, we facilitate targeted sessions that help each individual acquire new communication skills and strategies while strengthening their existing skills.
Following a traumatic brain injury or stroke, deficits in spoken language expression and comprehension, written expression, and reading comprehension can develop. Depending on the location and severity of the damage, communication difficulties can range from mild to profound—and take a real toll on a person’s quality of life. Hearing and Speech Connection is here to provide support and therapy to help patients attain their fullest communication potential.
Stuttering is the most common fluency disorder. Our role includes developing a culturally and linguistically relevant intervention plan that focuses on helping each individual achieve more fluent speech and selfacceptance of disfluency. An important part of intervention may also include counseling and assisting children who stutter in dealing with any bullying or teasing that they may experience. Our ultimate goal is to increase confidence in communication and enhance your quality of life.
Many people, including both children and adults, unknowingly use incorrect tongue placement, which can cause poor mouth health and sabotage expensive orthodontia by creating dental misalignment or gaps between teeth. No one wants to pay for braces and have teeth pushed back into misalignment because of a tongue thrust! Customized treatment plans are non-invasive yet highly effective. Our clinician has been specifically trained to diagnose and properly treat incorrect tongue posture to improve the overall health of your mouth and quality of life.
Issues with feeding and swallowing can be extremely concerning for parents or family members, as these capabilities are essential for good health, and ultimately, survival. Hearing and Speech Connection provides specialized treatment to promote safe and efficient feeding and swallowing.
Voice disorders occur when voice quality, pitch, and loudness are abnormal and interfere with effective communication. We offer services to determine the cause of symptoms and ideal treatment methods for improving voice production.
