There are several reasons why you or your child may be struggling with speech. The first step in resolving the issue is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation. Once the source of the issue is identified, specialized therapy may be required.

Voice Disorders

We work with otolaryngologists to develop therapy plans that cater to each client's communication needs.  We use evidence-based programs such as Lessac-Madsen Resonant Voice Training (LMRVT) and Vocal Function Exercises, which can often  help restore the voice to functioning with less strain and pain.
