Pediatric speech-language therapy is a type of therapy that helps children improve their communication skills, including their ability to speak, understand language, and interact with others. This type of therapy can also address feeding and swallowing difficulties in children.

You should consider pediatric speech-language therapy if your child is experiencing any of the following:

  1. Difficulty producing speech sounds or stuttering

  2. Trouble understanding and following directions

  3. Limited vocabulary or difficulty expressing ideas and thoughts

  4. Difficulty interacting with others and making friends

  5. Trouble with reading and writing skills

  6. Feeding and swallowing difficulties, such as gagging or choking

  7. Diagnosed developmental disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder,
    Down Syndrome, or Cerebral Palsy.

It's important to note that every child develops at their own pace, and some children may experience delays in speech and language skills. However, if you have concerns about your child's communication skills or if you notice that they are not meeting age-appropriate milestones, it's always best to speak with a pediatrician or a speech-language pathologist to determine if speech-language therapy could benefit your child. Early intervention can greatly improve a child's communication abilities and quality of life.
