Children from birth to three years of age who are experiencing speech and language delays may benefit from early intervention services. We are big believers in early intervention and getting help early. The earlier one receives help for challenges the better. Children who are late talkers could benefit from at least an evaluation.

Center for Success and Beyond provides auditory processing therapy for children. Auditory Processing Disorders (APD), also known as Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD) refer to how the central nervous system (CNS) uses auditory information. APD is an auditory deficit that is not the result of other higher-order cognitive, language, or related disorder.
Swallowing disorders, also called dysphagia (dis-FAY-juh), can occur at different stages in the swallowing process: Oral phase, Pharyngeal phase, and/or Esophageal phase.

Problems with understanding are called receptive language disorders. Problems with talking are called expressive language disorders. Children may have problems with both. Sometimes a language disorder is called specific language impairment, or SLI.
A stuttering disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called “disfluencies.” Most people produce brief disfluencies from time to time. For instance, some words are repeated and others are preceded by “um” or “uh.” Disfluencies are not necessarily a problem; however, they can impede communication when a person produces too many of them.
Most children make some mistakes as they learn to say new words. A speech sound disorder occurs when mistakes continue past a certain age. Every sound has a different range of ages when the child should make the sound correctly. Speech sound disorders include problems with articulation (making sounds) and phonological processes (sound patterns).
It is not unusual for children to have pragmatic problems in only a few situations. However, if problems in social language use occur often and seem inappropriate considering the child’s age, a pragmatic disorder may exist. Pragmatic disorders often coexist with other language problems such as vocabulary development or grammar. Pragmatic problems can lower social acceptance. Peers may avoid having conversations with an individual with a pragmatic disorder.
Aphasia is a disorder that results from damage to the parts of the brain that contain language. Aphasia causes problems with any or all of the following: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
