Ever wonder when speech therapy can help your child?  Well, we developed a checklist to help parents, caregivers, teachers and other heath care professionals to help!

Speech therapy can help your child with stuttering, lisping, autism, development disability, learning disability, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, genetic syndromes, concussion, brain injury, aphasia, apraxia of speech, voice injuries, vocal training and more.

Speech-language pathology (speech therapy) services can address a variety of concerns for families and their children from birth through school age and into adulthood.

Does your child have difficulty in the following areas?



  • Speech (being understood by unfamiliar listeners, producing sounds accurately, stuttering)

  • Language (using words/sentences to communicate, telling stories with a clear beginning/middle/end, verbalizing thoughts/ideas)

  • Swallowing (difficulty managing certain textures of foods with coughing/choking and/or vomiting present during meals)

  • Emergent Literacy (rhyming, verbal fluency and reading comprehension)

  • Social Communication (conversational turn-taking, greetings, eye contact)
