Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy

As medical Speech-Language Pathologists, we have specialized training and expertise in evaluating and treating infants, children, and adolescents with speech, language, voice, fluency, and oral feeding/swallowing disorders. Early speech-language, and oral feeding intervention can help your child reach their full potential and be as independent as possible in school, in the family, and in the community.

We have one focus: kids

We are dedicated to providing the best care for your child and family.  We will provide a thorough evaluation and a plan for treatment to meet your child’s needs.  If you have concerns about your child’s ability to communicate effectively or eat safely, your physician may recommend an evaluation with speech-language pathology.  Speech pathology services are available at the Akron campus and designated satellite locations in the area.  We look forward to working with you.
