What does a pediatrician do?

Speech Therapy

Allowing children to be understood

Speech therapy can help kids learn to speak more clearly. This helps them feel more confident and less frustrated about speaking to others. Kids who have language issues can benefit socially, emotionally and academically from speech therapy. Children must be heard and understood.

Feeding Therapy

From babies to adults

Feeding therapy could involve oral-motor therapy to address weak musculature in and around your child’s mouth. A behavioral feeding plan can also be embedded into oral-motor therapy. Feeding is multi-leveled, so it is important to consider the whole child.

Language Therapy

Giving children the tools to use their words

Language therapy can help children to better understand and use words within everyday life. It is imperative children are given the tools to express basic wants or participate within classroom discussions. Language is always evolving with early intervention being the greatest tool for a solid foundation.
