Children’s Speech Therapy in Manhattan

Manhattan Pediatric Speech Therapist

When you bring your child to see licensed speech therapist Stacey Miller, she’ll employ a wide range of standardized tests to analyze your child’s ability and capability in all areas of speech and language development. With this information, Stacey Miller can customize a treatment plan that targets the specific areas of speech and language that need improvement. These evaluations will examine receptive language and what your child understands in terms of semantics and syntax. It will evaluate your child’s use of expressive language and if they can accurately express themselves. It will also test articulation, identifying any trouble sounds or problems with auditory processing. In addition to discovering speech and language-related problems, we may also assess oral motor and feeding skills to determine if the mouth muscles are undeveloped or underutilized.

Oral Motor Therapy in Manhattan

Oral Motor Therapy in Manhattan

If your child is experiencing an oral motor disorder, and is experiencing symptoms such as trouble controlling his or her lips, tongue and mouth, we understand the difficulties that this presents for your child and for yourself. There is no better speech language pathologist that provides oral motor therapy in Manhattan than Stacey Miller, SLP. Our speech language pathologist understands that although these oral motor symptoms are physical, there is often a neurological component at play as well. There are two main, common disorders having to do with oral-motor issues. The first is Developmental Spraxia of Speech (DAS), or dyspraxia of speech. This disorder makes it difficult for children to form words because of the difficulties they are facing in manipulating and controlling the different parts of their mouths. The second oral motor disorder that is common in children is actually a group of disorders, known as articulation disorders. Tendencies that result from articulation disorders are lisps, speaking too quickly, and substituting one sound for another.
