Speech & Language Therapy

Our staff of five speech therapists, has expertise in meeting the needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Receptive and Expressive language deficits, Pragmatic language deficits, Social skill deficits, Hearing loss,  Speech difficulties, and Speech Apraxia. The therapists all have extensive training from and experience working with Dr. Schwartz.  While all the therapists share the philosophy of the clinic, they each bring their own focus and strengths which are then shared across therapists giving the therapy additional depth. The children who come to this clinic range in age from 1 year to 21 years and have varying diagnoses: Autism, Asperger Syndrome, Nonverbal Learning Disability,  Receptive/expressive language disorder, Semantic language disorder, Pragmatic language disorder,  Down Syndrome, Seizure Disorder, Mental Retardation and Language Delay.  For those children requiring it, Augmentative and Alternative Communication methods are offered as well. The needs of each child will determine the number of sessions per week. However, children are seen for a minimum of two sessions per week to insure that progress is made.   Sessions are 45 minutes to one hour in length.
