Basic speech plays a huge role in how humans communicate with one another. It not only allows us to express ideas and feelings, but it can also help get important information across, especially if we need help. For children, speech impediments, problems and other issues can make it difficult for them to properly communicate with others, which can be especially troublesome in the classroom, but in other aspects of their daily lives as well. In order to help give your child a voice, our New York City articulation therapist Stacey Miller, SLP can help identify your child’s speech issues and address them in a way that suits your child best.

Speech and articulation therapy is often a very personalized sort of treatment, so Stacey Miller, SLP will want to meet with you and your child before moving forward. Before making any sort of diagnosis or prescribing a treatment plan, Stacey Miller will get to know you and your child and will acquaint herself with the way that your child conducts themselves, what sorts of stimuli they respond do, what they like/don’t like etc. in order to get a full picture. In addition to paying close attention to how your child speaks and conducts themselves, she will will be able to begin formulating a therapy plan that will be able to address your child’s’ specific needs in a completely unique way. Since every child is different, it is important that developmental issues such as speech problems are handled with a sense of individuality. Our New York City articulation therapist can help identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to communication and use that information to help inform her therapeutic approach.

Stacey Miller, SLP offers a variety of different options when it comes to therapy and other treatments. Some kids work best in one-on-one sessions whereas others may thrive in social or group settings. In other cases, a bit of both can be helpful and conducive to learning. Our New York City articulation therapist is here to help your child improve and find their voice, and the sooner you call to set up an appointment the sooner your child will be able to communicate more effectively.

Many of our patients who mumble, have a lisp (also known as sibilance), or slight to moderate stutter have sought out our help. If you’ve tried a speech pathologist and got no results, or were disappointed with the results of speech therapy, then it’s time you let our New York City speech specialist, Stacey Miller, SLP, correct your speech impediment.

Most speech faults result from incorrect formation of vowels and consonants. This means that most issues can be corrected. The fundamental purpose of therapy is to bring harmony to the muscles of the tongue, lips, and cheeks. Disharmony of these muscles can cause unfavorable speech. Depending on your specific challenges, we can devise a training program best suited to your needs. You will be shown how to modify your speech patterns and sound formation. Ongoing exercises will ensure long term improvement. We’ve managed to correct even the worst lisps and stutters. For those seeking lisp treatment, our New York City speech specialist will help you acquire strategies and techniques that increase the fluency of speech and decrease dysfluencies such as prolongations (unnatural stretching out of a sound), blockages, and repetitions of sound, syllables, and words. You will also learn relaxation techniques to decrease anxiety and tension and the associative behaviors such as facial grimaces or ticks that often accompany speech behaviors. If you require our services for a stutter correction, we can help improve speech-sound production by developing and understanding the physiological movements involved to produce the various speech sounds. We will work towards achieving maximum speech clarity that is related to your lisp and other sound distortions.

If you would like to learn more about speech pathology, we highly recommend that you visit our practice’s main website to browse through some additional, detailed information that you might find useful. If you have any specific questions or concerns regarding lisp treatment and stutter correction that we can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact the staff here directly. Our New York City speech specialist, Dr. Miller, looks forward to working with you and creating a realistic and functional communication plan for each child and family.

Does Your Child Require Speech Therapy?

Speech Therapy Manhattan

In a recent parent-teacher conference, the teacher expressed concern that your child may be having a problem with certain speech or language skills. Or maybe while talking to your child, you noticed an occasional stutter and have become concerned for his or her future.

Could your child have a problem? And if so, what should you do? Call Stacy Miller, the best Speech Pathologist for Children in Manhattan

It is wise and your duty as a good parent to intervene quickly. An evaluation by a certified speech-language pathologist can help determine if your child is having difficulties. Speech-language therapy is the treatment for most kids with speech and/or language disorders.

Stacy Miller, SLP. will help you identify what sort of therapy your child will need. A speech disorder refers to a problem with the production of sounds, while a language disorder refers to the difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas.

Speech disorders include:

  • Articulation disorders: difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can’t understand what’s being said.
  • Fluency disorders: problems such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, repetitions (st-st-stuttering), or prolonging sounds and syllables (ssssstuttering).
  • Resonance or voice disorders: problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what’s being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking.
  • Dysphagia/oral feeding disorders: these include difficulties with drooling, eating, and swallowing.

Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive:

  • Receptive disorders: difficulties understanding or processing language.
  • Expressive disorders: difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.

Stacy Miller SLP has over 10 years of experience working with children with moderate to severe learning disabilities and sensory integration and her expertise embodies both experience and passion.  She is also fluent in sign language.  Stacey believes that every child deserves a chance to express his/her everyday wants, needs, thoughts and ideas regularly.  Therefore, she will work diligently to find a way, whether it be verbal or non-verbal, for her clients to feel the pleasure of being able to communicate efficiently with family, friends and teachers in all environments.
