What does Love to Speak offer?
Speech & Language Therapy
Articulation & Phonological Impairments:
Articulation treatment helps correct speech sounds and increase intelligibility of speech. This treatment focuses on the motor and phonetic component of the error.
Phonological treatment is geared towards patterns of speech sound errors. This treatment targets the linguistic and phonemic aspect of a speech sound error.
Fluency: This treatment helps those who have moments of dysfluent speech or stuttering concerns.
Receptive & Expressive Language: Language treatment helps children understand and use language in a functional way to communicate and comprehend.
Early Intervention: For the birth to 3 populations working on speech and language acquisition. A "play-based" therapy model that makes therapy fun and engaging in a child's natural environment.
Accent Modification & Reduction
Accent reduction and modification services are geared towards individuals who have a language (or languages) other than English who are seeking to become more intelligible to communicative partners. Many times, adults have frustration that their accented-English is impacting them at work or in social settings. Individuals may report that others have difficulty understanding them. Accent modification in speech therapy can help individuals speak more comfortably, effectively, and confidently with peers and their community.
Myofunctional Therapy & Swallowing
"Myofunctional" means muscle function. Myofunctional therapy works to support the muscles of the face and mouth to help an individual speak, breathe, eat, and swallow appropriately with muscle exercises. This type of therapy can help clients from age 4 and up who have underlying orofacial dysfunctions.
Myofunctional therapy is beneficial for:
Tethered oral tissues/ TOTs (e.g., tongue tie)
Sleep disordered breathing (e.g., apnea & snoring)
Stroke neuromuscular re-education for swallow
Speech sound difficulties
Dysphagia, feeding and swallowing disorders
Elimination of oral habits (e.g., thumb sucking)
