Pediatric Speech pathologist
Our pediatric Speech Pathologist has specialized training in pediatric swallowing diagnostics and treatment, as well as language development for children with delayed language and communication skills. We have specialized training in the most current techniques in voice and swallowing diagnostics for adults as well, including Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).
WHEN TO USE SERVICES OF A SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST
Anyone at any age can have a speech or language problem. The earlier the problem is diagnosed and therapy begun, the better the chances of successful treatment.
PEDIATRIC FEEDING AND SWALLOWING:
Problems with feeding and swallowing may include difficulty with sucking, chewing food, swallowing solids or liquids, coughing or choking when eating, and food sticking in the throat. Therapy focuses on each child’s medical and nutritional status, motor skills, sensory systems, and behavioral/emotional capabilities to achieve efficient and safe oral feeding in line with developmental milestones.
