Early identification and treatment of these disorders can help children with reading, writing, and social skills.

Prior to any treatment, we initiate a comprehensive evaluation to determine the appropriate intervention plan for each patient.

    Social Skills Program for Pragmatic Language Disorders
    Children with pragmatic difficulties often show problems using language in ways appropriate for their age. Pragmatic language disorders are characterized by excessive interruption and other socially inappropriate speech behavior, including a lack of eye contact or inability to engage in normal conversational exchange. Group therapy focuses on developing appropriate communicative behavior, including making introductions, asking questions, sharing ideas, expressing needs and wants, accepting suggestions, identifying emotions, monitoring body language and personal space, and listening appropriately.

  • Voice Clinic Voice Clinic

    Voice disorders and misuse are common in children. Children often use shouting, screaming, yelling, and excessive talking to get the attention of others, leading to serious vocal abuse problems. This can lead to inflammation of the vocal folds, chronic laryngitis, vocal nodules, vocal polyps, and contact ulcers. These conditions are normally reversible with the elimination of the cause behaviors, along with a program of voice therapy and good vocal hygiene.
