Treatment at Silicon Valley Speech
Speech Therapy provides therapy that is individualized to each child's personality and needs.
Sessions are 60 minutes, with frequency at least 1x/week, tailored to your child's frequency needs (up to 5 days/week). A variety of techniques are used so your child has the best chance to make substantial progress in his/her speech and language goals.
Disorders treated at Silicon Valley Speech, include but are not limited to:
Every person is unique and each therapy session must be custom-tailored to individual needs. We provide telepractice services for children (Birth - 18 years).
At Silicon Valley Speech, we believe that therapy should take an interventionist stance incorporating specific speech and language goals that are augmented by easy-to-do home-based assignments.
Carry-over is key! Practice makes perfect.
Speech Sound Disorders: 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).
Autism Spectrum Disorder/Social-pragmatic deficits: A neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in social communication, social interaction, and the presence of restricted, repetitive behaviors. Autism can range from mild to severe, but is different in each person. Therapy focuses on the use of communication and social skills throughout daily routines, settings, and communicative partners.
Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS): A neurological childhood (pediatric) speech sound disorder in which the precision and consistency of movements underlying speech are impaired in the absence of neuromuscular deficits (e.g., abnormal reflexes, abnormal tone).
Expressive/Receptive Language Disorders: People with language disorders may have trouble understanding language or communicating with others. Treatment focuses on building language skills that coincide with learning, behavior, self-esteem, and social skills.
Stuttering: Affects the fluency of speech. It begins during childhood, and can last throughout life. The disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called disfluencies.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): People with a brain injury often have cognitive (thinking) and communication problems that significantly impair their ability to live independently. These problems vary depending on how widespread brain damage is and the location of the injury.
Anxiety-Induced Speech Disorders: Treatment helps patients use strategies to reduce anxiety and increase communicative abilities.
Accent Modification Treatment: Treatment helps students improve accent, grammar, and cultural competency.
