Kennett Square will be staffed with highly trained, certified, and licensed speech-language pathologists (SLPs) supplied with state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapy materials. Our caring SLPs are dedicated to helping children with speech-language and communication deficiencies. They provide a family-focused approach to ensure that the techniques and plans covered in each pediatric speech therapy carry over into the home to increase the chances for success. We believe in matching one speech-language therapist to one child, so that SLP can build a trusting relationship with the child and the parents. It’s an approach that has led to outstanding outcomes and has won us a lot of praise from clients.
What we do
We follow a family-focused approach to help kids ages 0 to 18 years old communicate more confidently.
We match one child to speech-language pathologist and follow the approach:
Speech, language and feeding therapy sessions
Family counseling for speech/language support at home
Referrals to other specialists
Collaboration with educators, physicians and other professionals as needed
We treat all speech-language disorders and feeding disorders. We specialize in childhood apraxia of speech and fluency (stuttering and cluttering). Several of our therapists have been Prompt® trained and/or certified.
