Frequently Asked Questions

Speech therapy is when a certified practitioner, known as a speech-language pathologist (S-LP) works with an adult or child who has a communication difficulty such as spoken and written language issues, speech difficulties, stuttering, voice disorders, reading, and swallowing. SL-Ps help to identify the disorder(s), evaluate it, and provide treatment for it. Education regarding specific communication disorders, how we can help and what you as a parent or caregiver can do is an important focus of assessment and treatment.

Early difficulties with spoken language and understanding language can result in problems with reading, writing and overall learning. Furthermore, difficulty with social communication, an important aspect of making and keeping friends can be affected. Therefore the earlier a child gets assessed and has therapy the better.

If not addressed in a timely manner, struggles with communication can have a lifelong effect. As children get older and have a communication difficulty, it can be more difficult for them to make friends or be successful in school. If the problems persist into adulthood there can be many after effects— socially, academically and professionally. Adults with communication issues may find themselves struggling in their work and personal lives. Early intervention is key to success at any age.

Clinical studies and scientifically-proven techniques go a long way, but if you don’t understand the specific needs of the client, it becomes more difficult to treat them. Many factors including genetics, personality, and family environment play a significant role in language and communication development. At the SST we provide a holistic approach to therapy where we examine and attempt to understand all contributing factors in order to provide the best possible assessments and therapy programs for our clients.

I took my 2-year-old son to SST for his issue with articulation, and Heather was our therapist. We had a wonderful experience with her. She developed a quick bond with our son and helped him come a long way with his articulation. She also was very helpful in explaining the process to me, so I could practice with him at home. My son adored Heather, and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking speech therapy for themselves or their child.
