Speech Sound Disorders at a Glance
A speech sound disorder exists when children or adults have difficulty making certain sounds/words. A speech-language pathologist will conduct an evaluation and create an individualized treatment plan that will increase overall intelligibility.
Language at a Glance
A language disorder is impaired comprehension and/or use of spoken, written and/or other symbol systems. The disorder may involve (1) the form of language (phonology, morphology, syntax), (2) the content of language (semantics), and/or (3) the function of language in communication (pragmatics) in any combination. A speech-language pathologist will conduct an evaluation and create an individualized treatment plan that will increase communication abilities.

Accent Modification at a Glance
When relocating from another country or from another part of the United States, we bring more than just luggage. One of the main things we bring is our accent. Accents are a part of one’s culture and identity. However some accents may affect communication and therefore affect the ability to move up the corporate ladder. As speech-language pathologists, we provide services that will analyze a client’s speech to increase communication skills and intelligibility.
