Speech and language disorders refer to problems in communication and related areas such as oral motor function. These delays and disorders range from simple sound substitutions to the inability to understand or use language or use the oral-motor mechanism for functional speech and feeding. Some causes of speech and language disorders include hearing loss, neurological disorders, brain injury, mental retardation, drug abuse, physical impairments such as cleft lip or palate, and vocal abuse or misuse. Frequently, however, the cause is unknown.

If you or someone you know would benefit from Speech-Language Therapy please contact our office for an appointment. Most services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private medical insurance policies, or other third party payers. A doctor's order is required to begin receiving Speech-Language services.
