The Speech Cove LLC provides child-led based intervention to enhance carryover skills through speech therapy for children. The Speech Cove specializes in evaluation and treatment for the following areas:
ARTICULATION & PHONOLOGY
CHILDHOOD APRAXIA OF SPEECH
An articulation disorder occurs when a child makes sounds with incorrect placement, timing, pressure, speech, and or coordination of the articulators (lips, tongue, teeth, jaw, velum) that results in mispronounced sounds.
A phonological process disorder refers to a child's difficulty understanding the sound system and speech rules of our language. A child with a phonological disorder may mispronounce a sound in certain words, yet clearly pronounce it in others.
Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder that makes it difficult for children to speak. Children with the diagnosis of apraxia of speech generally have a good understanding of language and know what they want to say. However, they have difficulty learning or carrying out the complex sequenced movements that are necessary for intelligible speech.
Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder in which the muscles used for speech are weakened, thereby resulting in slurred and slow speech that may be incomprehensible. People with dysarthria may be unable to control the muscles that are used for articulation, speed, and pitch of speech.
