“The therapists at Westside are amazing! The love and support that they have given my family has been outstanding. My son has made so much progress because of them.” – P. Deboer

Our Approach

Our speech therapists facilitate children in establishing the speech and language skills vital for effective communication. This is achieved through the evaluation and treatment of expressive and receptive language, problem-solving and reasoning, social skills, sign language, and augmentative communication (communication devices, PECs, etc). Our therapists also work with children on their pre-speech and feeding skills, swallowing, and oral-motor development. We strive to assist your child in finding his or her ‘voice’. We never forget that a kid is a kid by ensuring therapy is fun, safe, and inviting. Our expectation: life-changing results.
