Often times parents don’t know that their child may benefit from speech therapy.  The first sign that your child may benefit from speech therapy, believe it or not, is when they are developing the speech centers in their brain, which occurs only a few weeks after birth.  These milestones, such as babbling, single words, several words, complete sentences, and then descriptive words are important.  If your child doesn’t hit one of these milestones, or is delayed in these milestones, they can probably benefit from speech therapy through the Aspen Center.  The earlier they are able to start speech therapy, the more likely it is that they won’t develop more serious issues down the road.    

Speech therapy through the Aspen Center assesses and treats speech delays, disorders, and communication problems.  Speech therapy is able to help children develop skills in comprehension, clarity, voice, fluency, and sound production.  No matter how far behind your child may be, speech therapy can be one of the most important tools that you can provide to help them catch up. 

Speech therapy is also great at helping to treat impairments that are caused by cleft palate, stroke, brain injury, or other conditions.  At the Aspen Center we believe that we are all part of an interconnected system, we understand that working together is what provides the best support to each child and family that we encounter.  We would love to help your child improve their chance for success.  Please, feel free to browse our website for more information at https://aspencenter.net or don’t hesitate to reach out and contact us today for more information.
