Chatham Speech and Language Associates provides evaluation and treatment of many childhood speech and language disorders, as well as myofunctional therapy for children to adults. During the evaluation process we gather developmental history and medical history prior to determining what type of evaluation is indicated. Typically, a full speech and language assessment is carried out over several appointments so the child doesn't fatigue. Results are discussed in detail with the family and treatment recommendations are made.

 

If therapy is indicated, your child will be placed with one of our therapists. That placement is made based on the child's scheduled needs. Your child will be scheduled for 1-3 thirty-minute sessions per week depending on the level of need. We have found that  30 minute sessions maximize the therapeutic impact as the child is able to maintain his focus and attention for the majority of the session. Feedback is given at the end of each session and suggestions are made for ways to carry-over strategies and techniques that were targeted in the session.
