Speech & Language Therapy
The mission of Katalyst Speech Therapy LLC is to offer children and their families quality speech services and support in expanding verbal/non-verbal communication for a better quality of life.
There are different ways to help your child with stuttering and treatment usually includes you, your child, and other family members. Your therapist will use both:
Direct strategies—working with your child to change how he speaks.
Indirect strategies—finding ways to make it easier for your child to talk.
Language Skills Therapy
Pragmatics skills are vital to the way we communicate our personal thoughts, ideas, and feelings. Your child will learn strategies to improve their daily social and language skills as they communicate with different people in different situations.
If your child has trouble making sounds he/she may substitute another sound, leave sounds out, add sounds, or change the sound. It can be hard for others to understand him. Articulation therapy will help your child learn the correct way to produce sounds in isolation, words, phrases, and sentences for optimal conversation.
