At the American Center for Psychiatry and Neurology, we provide a wide range of services to children with developmental, psychiatric, and emotional conditions. These services are provided by our team of highly qualified Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Psychologists, Special Educators, and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapists.
Speech and language therapists assess and treat communication and swallowing difficulties across the lifespan. Our SLTs work directly with clients and caregivers to provide them with individualized support following a treatment plan. Speech and language services improve communication skills of children and adolescents. Speech and communication broadly cover how we speak, what we understand, what we say, and how we interact with others. Speech and Language pathology also includes other skills such as literacy, reading comprehension, and auditory processing.
Using the latest methods and research, we design evaluations and therapy sessions to meet the individual needs of each child and family. Our Speech and Language Department offers services at the center, at schools and nurseries, and teletherapy for supporting the transition and generalization of learned skills.
