About Us

In addition to traditional articulation and receptive/expressive language treatment, the Speech Pathway team offers therapy that focuses on phonological/phonemic awareness, which is linked to improved reading skills.

The Speech Pathway team is passionate about helping people develop successful communication skills and is committed to improving the well-being of children from birth to 18 years.  We understand the importance of early detection and intervention of childhood speech and language disorders.
