Speech and Language Therapy Services in Northern Kentucky
This specialized field focuses on the treatment of children who need assistance to become functional communicators in their environments. Our therapist holds a Masters Degrees in Speech Language Pathology and she’s certified by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and Kentucky Speech Language and Hearing Association (KSHA). Individual assessment for children addresses functional communication problems and provides treatment in a family centered environment.
Children begin to learn language very early in life. Speaking, listening, reading, writing, and gestures are all forms of language. As children grow their language skills become increasingly complex. At NKY Speech Therapy Services we evaluate children using standardized tests. When indicated, a treatment plan is established including family/child goals.
NKY Speech Therapy Services focuses on receptive language, the ability to understand words spoken to you, and expressive language, the ability to use words to express yourself. In addition, our therapy services offers treatment of many speech/language disorders including:
- Articulation Disorders
- Language Delays
- Accent Modification
- Language Based Reading and Writing Problems
- Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders
- Auditory Processing
