Speech, language and feeding skills are essential for connection, communication and socialization with other individuals. At ATC, we take the time to get to know your child and evaluate his or her communication needs. Our evaluations can cover articulation, language, oral motor, feeding, social language, voice, and fluency. We continue to evaluate each child and assess his or her needs throughout treatment.
We evaluate your child's speech and language skills and determine if speech therapy is needed. If therapy is recommended, an individualized treatment plan is created to meet your child's communication needs.
We provide one-on-one speech therapy to target your child's individualized goals. We utilize evidence-based practice along with engaging activities. We aim to put the "fun" in functional communication!
We evaluate your child's oral motor skills for feeding and determine if feeding therapy is needed. If therapy is recommended, an individualized treatment plan is created to meet your child's nutritional and feeding needs.
Speech therapy helps individuals improve their communication with peers and caregivers. No matter the cause of the communication difficulties, speech therapy can improve an individual's overall quality of life. Contact us today to schedule a speech therapy evaluation if your child has difficulty talking, eating, nasal breathing, or using language.
For children, speech therapy is play based since it is a child's job to play. During play activities, children may participate in mouth and tongue movements/exercises, repetition of target speech sounds, social emotional engagement, imitation of movements and/or sounds, and more!
We provide speech therapy, language therapy, feeding therapy, oral motor therapy, and orofacial myofunctional therapy. We specialize in the birth-to-five population for language delays and feeding difficulties. We provide speech therapy (e.g., articulation, fluency, etc.) to kids of all ages.
Here are some of the diagnoses we encounter: articulation disorder, speech delay, language delay, oral motor weakness, feeding difficulties, developmental delay, attention difficulties, autism spectrum disorder, and beyond.
We provide speech therapy services in our office in Altamonte Springs, close to the Altamonte Mall and Cranes Roost. We also travel to local daycares.
We provide language therapy to children ages birth- to- 5-years-old with language disorders. We provide speech therapy (i.e., fluency, articulation, etc.), oral motor therapy, and feeding therapy for children from birth-to-18 years old.
All individuals who need help with communication skills can benefit from speech therapy. At our practice, we provide speech therapy to kids starting around 18-months of age. Research has shown that children who need speech therapy have the most success when they start as early as the communication difficulty is identified. Early Intervention for speech therapy is key to closing the gap.
Prior to receiving speech therapy, your child will receive a speech and language evaluation to see if speech and/or language services are warranted.
Following the evaluation, the therapist will share the results of the evaluation and further recommendations. If therapy is warranted, individualized treatment goals will be created based on observations made during the evaluation.
Everyone child's communication needs are unique. We are unable to determine how long speech therapy will last for any child. Some influencing factors on the length of speech therapy are: a child's attending skills, the child's age, the severity of the communication disorder, how often the child attends therapy, parental involvement, and home carryover of speech therapy strategies and activities.
Tongue ties can impact feeding, speech, sleep, breathing, dentition and more!
If you suspect your child has a tongue tie, it is important to receive an evaluation by a TOTs (I.e., Tethered Oral Tissues) trained professional prior to seeking removal of the tie.
We are TOTs trained and assess the structure and function of the oral cavity and it's impact on overall development.
