Stacey Miller, SLP knows the importance of expression, especially in children. She knows just how important it is to properly communicate with your family and with the world around you, and provides any number of one-on-one therapy sessions to address any such expression or speaking issues. This Manhattan speech therapist knows that every child is different, has different needs, and has different methods of learning. A preliminary evaluation will help her determine your child’s needs and personality. She will study and observe your child in multiple environments to see how they operate and see what works best for them. That way, she can create a personalized therapy plan that is suited specifically for your child. Articulation can be difficult for some children and is not at all an uncommon issue among learning language speakers. If your child is having difficulty producing speech sounds they may be employing the incorrect movement or placement of the tongue, lips, velum and/or the pharynx when speaking or producing sounds. The use of all of these organs contributes to the sounds we produce with our mouths and sometimes finding a comfortable way to use these organs can be difficult for children to pick up and understand how to operate correctly.

Individual therapy sessions with Stacey Miller, SLP can range between 30, 45 and 60 minutes. The length will depend on your preferences as well as the determined need of the child. These sessions can help provide this Manhattan speech therapist with the proper environment in which to focus on every child’s individual needs and to meet their individual goals. Since every child learns differently, these individual articulation sessions are perfect for focusing on a child’s specific needs and adhering to their specific learning habits.

Stacey Miller specializes in evaluating and treating children with a variety of development delays in the following areas: Feeding Difficulties, Oral Motor Delays, Articulation, and Expressive and Receptive Language Delays.

Oral Motor delays can affect speech and feeding skills, as a child with an oral-motor disorder will have difficulty controlling their lips, tongue, and jaw muscles. Signs of oral motor deficits include sensitivity to touch or an avoidance of oral activities such as brushing teeth. Though oral motor disorders cause physical issues, they often have a neurological component as well. Therapy with Stacey Miller, trusted New York City speech pathologist, will target improving lip and jaw stability and coordination.

One of the main oral-motor disorders are articulation disorders. This includes fast-paced speech, lisping, leaving out consonants, and substituting one sound for another. Though many articulation errors are development in nature, an articulation disorder occurs when a child produces a sound incorrectly in words. Children with this difficulty have not learned how sounds fit together to create a word. Mastering specific speech sounds may take place over the course of several years, depending on the age of your child.

A type of oral motor delay includes feeding difficulties. Signs of a feeding disorder in your child may include extreme food selectivity, refusal to eat, presence of a strong gag reflex, and an oral aversion.
