Who We Are & What We Do: Speech & Language Therapy


Normal speech and language, as well as effective feeding skills, are essential to the proper development of infants, children, and adolescents. As pediatric professionals, the speech therapists at Children’s Specialized Hospital are highly experienced with the unique needs of patients from birth through 21 years of age.

Our speech therapists are familiar with the developmental milestones that are normally attained at each stage in a child’s life. They provide age-appropriate activities to improve speech, communication, and feeding skills, and are adept at encouraging and motivating patients to reach their goals.
