Speech and Language Therapy

Receptive and Expressive Language Therapy addresses how your child understands and uses language in order to better participate in the world around him.

Therapy Details

Differences in speech and language development can be the result of a variety of underlying causes. Often times, progress in these areas is slow because traditional therapies are not considering the entire system and therefore not addressing the CORE issues. At Dynamic Therapy Specialists, our clients participate in a comprehensive assessment process to determine the CORE issues and develop the best plan.
