Speech and Language Therapy
Speech Bananas provides speech and language therapy to children with articulation (speech production) delays, phonological disorders, language delays or disorders, autism, hearing loss and auditory disorders, fluency disorders. We tailor each session to the needs of the child and teach family members in-home support practices for their child. Family guidance is a critical component to ensure that each child progresses to his or her full communicative potential.
Therapy sessions are based on the needs of each client and goals are tailored according to progress during therapy. Parents are an integral part of each therapy session. Children are able to achieve success more quickly when parents are working on goals outside of each therapy session. It is the therapist’s job to educate, empower, encourage, and reinforce the primary caregiver’s ability to develop a child’s speech, language, auditory, cognitive, and literacy skills.

What Parents Say About Speech Bananas
