Our mission is to benefit children with speech and language disorders through specialized early intervention programs, research to improve language learning, and professional training that links research to clinical practice.

Speech Therapy Pathology

Our programs are designed to help young children 2 – 5 years of age develop speech, language, and pre-literacy skills necessary to participate confidently and successfully in family, social, and academic activities. Speech and language therapy is available for children who can benefit from these services.

Speech-language pathologists provide intake evaluations for children interested in attending any of Wings on Words programs. These clinicians also provide speech and language therapy for children with delays in this area that is integrated into a child’s preschool or ToddlerU experiences.

Screening: Screening includes a brief evaluation of a child’s speech and language skills to determine if a more in-depth evaluation should be completed. A hearing screening is part of the assessment.

Diagnostic Evaluation: A diagnostic evaluation includes an in-depth evaluation of a child’s speech and language skills. This includes a determination of whether the child performs as well as other children his or her age in terms of:

Speech Sounds – pronouncing individual sounds (articulation) and producing sounds in words and sentences (phonology).
Vocabulary – understanding and using an age-appropriate number of words to express basic concepts and ideas.
Grammar – putting words together to form sentences
Language Use – using language to reason, problem solve, and communicate with others to express wants and needs.

In addition, the child’s speech will be screened to rule out problems with voice (for example, chronic hoarseness) or fluency (stuttering).
