SERVICES

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is an intervention service that focuses evaluation & treatment of improving a child's speech & abilities to understand & express language, including nonverbal language. It includes two components: 1) coordinating the mouth to produce sounds to form words & sentences and 2) understanding &  expressing language.

Beckman Oral Motor

Beckman Oral Motor is an intervention approach developed by Debra Beckman. The primary function of the Beckman Oral Motor approach is to improve the strength, coordination, awareness and range of motion of the soft palate, tongue, cheeks, lips, and jaw through the use of a variety of exercises that stimulate the oral structures.

Feeding Therapy

Pediatric feeding therapy can address many challenges that you face including but not limited to: breastfeeding issues, increasing oral intake, food aversions, strengthening the oral motor muscles, and moving from tube feeding to oral intake. Pediatric feeding therapy and feeding therapy for babies typically takes place during mealtime.

Tongue Tie & Lip Tie Therapy

Tongue ties occur when an unusually strong band of tissue tethers the tongue to the floor of the mouth, and can interfere with breastfeeding, eating, swallowing and speaking in children. We offer pre-intervention evaluation and guidance for tongue and lip ties and therapy post surgery

FAQ’s

WHEN SHOULD I SEEK OUT A SPEECH THERAPIST?

You should reach out to a speech therapist if you are having any of the following concerns for your child:
  • Speech Delays
  • Developmental Delays
  • Articulation Concerns
  • Difficulty during mealtimes
  • Difficulty with eating and swallowing
  • Bottle-feeding and breastfeeding trouble
  • If you believe your child might present with a tongue or lip tie
  • Therapy Guidance following a Frenulectomy or Frenectomy tongue or lip procedure

WHAT ARE SPEECH DELAYS?

Speech delays, also known as alalia, refer to a delay in the development or use of speech mechanisms by young children. Speech delays can manifest in a child’s expression of language, a child’s understanding of language, or a child’s pronunciation of language.

HOW CAN A SPEECH THERAPIST HELP?

At Talk About Therapy we want you to know you are not alone.

WHEN SHOULD I SEEK HELP/EVALUATION?

If you are concerned:

  • If you have noticed one or more of any the behaviors discussed, contact us for a consultation or evaluation. For more detailed red flags you can look for in your infant or child, please click here.
  • If you suspect a tongue or lip tie may be interfering with your child’s eating or weight gain, we can refer you to expert providers of intervention procedures such as a Frenulectomy or Frenectomy tongue procedure. Our trusted experts can provide you with the information you need to decide if this route is best for your child.
  • If you suspect a tongue or lip tie could be interfering with your child’s ability to clearly communicate, we can help you decide whether or not a Frenulectomy or Frenectomy tongue procedure would be beneficial. We can also provide speech therapy for kids or speech therapy for toddlers to teach your child exercises and speaking strategies to compensate for the difference in their lip or tongue.

WHAT IS EARLY INTERVENTION AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Why early intervention and identification are crucial for your child’s progress and development:

  • Whenever a child shows signs of difficulty communicating, understanding, or being understood, research recommends that the earlier a child is evaluated and receives services the better. The younger the child, the easier it is for their brain to learn and adapt to the techniques taught in therapy. To learn about communication milestones to look for in your child, click here.
  • Difficulties involving swallowing and feeding could affect your child’s nutrition. We recommend seeking help as soon as you are aware of any concerns.

We can help!

If you are experiencing or observing one or more of any of these breastfeeding issues or feeding, swallowing, or communication difficulties in your child, please visit our services page to learn more about how our licensed experts can assist your child and family.

    Niti is wonderful! She help me and my son out when he had his tongue tie done . It was hard to do the exercises with him being an older baby trying to get in his mouth but she showed me ways to get it done without a fight. Thank you again … More Niti for the help!!! 🥰

    My daughter was showing early developmental delays at her 12 month wellness checkup. Her pediatrician referred us to Talk About Therapy. I was very nervous and worried about my baby. The owner Niti was very professional and helpful. She … More educated me as a parent as well. My daughter has been in speech therapy for 6 months now and she is saying a lot more words now and is much better with communicating. Developmentally she is far more advanced than she was at her 12 month wellness checkup. She also just started with a new therapist Bianca. I was very nervous for my daughter to have therapy with anyone else but Niti. I had gotten comfortable with Niti, and so did my daughter, but the new therapist Bianca is amazing with my daughter. Whenever I need to reschedule or have any questions Niti and Bianca are always available. Talk About Therapy goes above and beyond. They have helped my daughter tremendously and eased my anxieties and concerns as a parent with her speech development.

    I made the best decision by picking Niti as my son’s therapist. She’s pleasant and patient. She detected the cause of his feeding problem (tongue tie) and we got it fixed.

If any parent is looking a speech therapist, I highly recommend.
