What If...?

....Your child is not speaking?

 Your child has trouble with certain sounds?

You can’t understand your child or he/she can’t understand you?

Your child has signs of Apraxia, Attention Deficit Disorders (ADHD), Autism (ASD), Auditory Processing Disorders (C/APD), Dyslexia, Language Processing Disorders, Learning Disabilities, etc.

Your pediatrician or ENT recommended voice therapy?

Your child’s voice has become hoarse, and it’s not getting better?

You want to improve the quality, loudness or endurance of your child’s voice?

You want to protect your child’s voice from abuse?

Your child is suddenly stuttering and you want to know what to do?

We work together!

Apraxia / Articulation Problems – we help children produce clearer speech, improving and strengthening their oral motor skills and motor planning system
Attention Deficit Disorders (ADHD) – we help children achieve greater attention with cognitive-behavioral strategies (learning skills like organization and time management), and we are comfortable discussing medications, exercise and alternative treatments to make sure your child does his/her best at home and in school.
Autism (ASD) and Asperger’s Syndrome – we help children with a dynamic approach that integrates a developmental perspective and behavioral strategies. We identify your child’s strengths and leverage your child’s profile to maximize his/her verbal and social success.
Auditory Processing Disorders (C/APD) – we help children, families and schools to develop strategies for academic success in the face of auditory processing difficulties.
Dyslexia – whether your child has visual tracking difficulties or language based difficulties in literacy, we help children of all ages and levels progress in (and enjoy) reading (English / Greek)
Receptive / Expressive Language – we help children develop strategies to promote better oral and written expression (word-retrieval, vocabulary, spelling, etc.) and better listening and reading comprehension.
Late talkers – we help parents determine when to initiate therapy and when to hold-off and “watch and see.” We give parents the tools they need to facilitate their children’s speech-language development.
Other learning disabilities – we use our training and experience to understand, engage and motivate children with a wide range of learning profiles.

Voice Disorders - Through individual voice therapy, we aim to rehabilitate, enhance and protect your child’s voice — for now and for the future. We help children take control of their voice habits and routines with hands-on demonstrations and practical exercises. We coach parents through the process of making a difference in their child’s voice.

Stuttering - We educate parents and equip them with strategies to help their children.
We help children gain skills and confidence in speech.
