May is better Speech and Hearing Month

The Most Anticipated Moment

The most anticipated moment for a parent is the sound of a child's first words. But what if the words are delayed, jumbled, or never come at all? Speech and language problems can affect early learning and self-esteem. Give your child a chance by seeking proper treatment from a speech-language pathologist.

Reach Your Full Potential

As we strive to reach our full potential, speech and language problems can hold us back. To some it may be a delay in talking or difficulty swallowing. Others may be unable to speak clearly or comprehend because of a stroke or accident. Speech and language problems can affect anyone at any age. If you are concerned that a disorder is going untreated or are unable to find proper treatment, consult a speech-language pathologist.

Communication Disorders Do Not Discriminate

Millions of Americans have a communication or swallowing disorder. These disorders affect people of all ages, from all walks of life. For them, simple thoughts like "Thank you" and "I love you" may be impossible to convey. If you are concerned that a disorder is affecting your education, professional life, or personal relationships, consult a speech-language pathologist.

Communication for Life

Speech and language disorders can affect anyone at any age. Millions of infants, children and adults in America suffer from a communication or swallowing disorder. Whether it's a difficulty in swallowing or a disorder such as stuttering, delayed language or a voice problem, a person's ability to learn and interact with others can be affected. If you suspect you or a loved one may be experiencing a communication or swallowing disorder, consult a speech-language pathologist.
