Speech and language therapy focuses on a child′s ability to communicate both verbally and non-verbally. Children communicate using a wide variety of means, from simple gestures to one to two word utterances to more complex skills such as those necessary to sustain a conversation. As children grow they learn to engage in social situations, read and respond to non-verbal gestures, and body language. Our Speech and language therapists emphasize receptive and expressive communication, articulation, social pragmatics, and oral-motor skills. At Easthills Speech-Language Services, our speech and language specialists are an integral part of our multi-disciplinary team so that language can be reinforced across all environments.
