Pediatric Therapy – Connections Speech Language Therapy
Building better communication for a brighter future

Pediatric Therapy

What is speech therapy?

Our speech therapy programs help and guide our clients to develop the skills needed for successful communication. These skills can affect all aspects of daily life, from communicating basic needs, to developing social skills and friendships to progressing in school. Our licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologists have master’s degrees and extensive experience and expertise in childhood speech, feeding and language issues.

The SLP will conduct a thorough assessment and then develop an individualized plan to target the specific skills impaired.
