  • language disorders, the delayed development or impairment of skills such as comprehension, expression, vocabulary, sentence structure and language processing
  • swallowing disorders/dysphagia, ineffective swallowing patterns caused by immature development, neurological impairment or other conditions
  • aphasia, loss of language and function as a result of brain damage

Group Speech Therapy for Children

This program for preschoolers is offered through the Warren Center. For many children with speech communication problems, a group environment presents the best opportunity to correct disorders. The preschool-like setting includes play, circle and snack times led by a speech language pathologist.
