Speech therapy encompasses many different areas including speech sound production (motor planning/ articulation/ phonology), language skills (understanding and use of language), fluency and voice, resonance, cognition, feeding/swallowing and oral-motor skills. At mOST, our pediatric speech-language pathologists complete evaluations and implement therapy goals to address receptive and/or expressive communication, articulation, voice, fluency, augmentative and/or alternative communication, social pragmatics, oral-motor skills and/or feeding difficulties. Our therapists collaborate with parents, schools and other professionals to deliver comprehensive treatment in order to maximize each child’s individual communication potential.
Occupational therapy practitioners work with children on the underlying skills necessary for active participation in activities or “occupations” that they engage in daily. For children, these meaningful occupations may include play, self-care, learning, school performance, and socializing. Occupational therapists address areas such as fine motor skills, gross motor skills, sensory processing, strength, and coordination.
