Speech and Language Therapy
in New York City/Hamptons
Extremely friendly, relationship based environment. Children undergo a thorough dynamic assessment, where we analyze and match your child's developmental level. We take into account child's individual differences (sensory, physical, cognitive, social - emotional development) and your child's unique way of taking in the information from the world. We take into account the biological differences that may be influencing your child's ability to learn and grow. We strongly believe in building relationships with primary caregivers, and think that it is a critical element in helping a child return to a healthy developmental path.

* Individual as well as group therapy are available.
