Language Disorder? Language Delay? There’s a difference? We can help.
We share our thoughts, feelings and wants/needs with others through language. As noted on our home page, communication is connection! It is that simple, and that complicated. When children or adults struggle with any aspect of language – understanding, talking, reading or writing – they may be dealing with a language disorder. Sometimes children are developing language, but more slowly than expected. This is considered a “delay” vs. a “disorder”. Whether dealing with a language delay or disorder, we can help! And the best part? We facilitate language growth through play! Our little people learn best while doing what comes naturally, and a well-designed therapy session targets individualized goals during interactive play-based activities. For our school-aged students, we often target language that is tied to academics so school work and communication are strengthened simultaneously.
Adults can lose language due to traumatic brain injury, stroke, or dementia. We help clients, and their families, move toward functional communication, restoring dignity and independence. Vocational and social language goals are often frequently addressed when adults are looking to return to work after an accident or illness. We’re here to help – let’s get started!
