Cognitive Behavioral Speech Therapy for Children

A clear speech and good hearing power is essential to have a successful career for every child or teen.

Why Go For Speech Therapy?

A clear speech and good hearing power is essential to have a successful career for every child or teen. By age 3 most of what your child says should be pretty understandable. However, if your child isn't talking or is talking very little, you should act more quickly. 

There are types of hearing and speech disorder

  • Stammering

  • Misarticulation

  • Autism

  • Delayed speech and language

  • Various voice disorders

  • Hearing Loss

See a speech-language pathologist if your child is doing any of the following:

  • Mispronouncing consonants, saying “tup” instead of “Cup” , “tow” instead of “cow”, “thip” instead of “ship”, “labbit” instead of “rabbit”

  • Still saying single words only, and not phrases or sentences

  • Using a limited vocabulary. Or saying a word once and then not using it again

  • Talking using mostly vowels, omitting whole consonants, saying "a" for "cat"

  • Answering a question by repeating part of your question. If you say, "Do you want milk?" he responds by saying, "...you want milk?" instead of nodding his head or saying yes (this is called echolalia, and may be an early sign of autism)

  • Not pointing to objects in books. If you say, "Show me the kitty cat," he flips the page or repeats the phrase but doesn't actually point to the animal

  • Struggling using pronouns, saying, "Him not here"

  • Confusing gender, saying, "He hit me" when he's talking about his sister

  • Not following simple directions and understanding prepositions such as under, on, or over. For instance, he doesn't turn around when you say, "Your ball is right behind you"

  • Not changing or developing his language much from month to month
