Westside Voice and Swallowing
SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY PRIVATE PRACTICE
Following the guidelines of ASHA and clinical ethics, we provide services for children with articulation and language delays, dysarthria, as well as voice and fluency problems.
All Westside Voice and Swallowing Disorders teachers are licensed to teach by the state. Many also have certifications or licenses for specific conditions..
Speech therapy can help reduce child's frustration from not being understood, and help him or her transition smoothly through the preschool and Department of Education system. Disorders evaluated and treated include:
We provide individual speech and language therapy for adults presenting with neurologically based voice and swallowing disorders.
We offer thorough evaluations for children ages 12 months to 18 years of age. Evaluations are coordinated with parents and teachers to determine an overall picture of the child's function in daily living and school settings. We conduct evaluations by obtaining parent interviews, formal (standardized) tests, as well as informal tasks. We will determine if speech/language treatment is recommended and advise as to the frequency (weekly or biweekly) and duration that we expect these sessions to last.
