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 NYC speech pathologist, 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 NYC speech pathologist 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 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 NYC pathologist, Dr. Miller, looks forward to working with you and creating a realistic and functional communication plan for each child and family.

NYC Speech and Language Therapy

NYC Speech and Language Therapy

If you think about it, there’s really nothing more fundamental to our social lives than our ability to speak to others and understand others when they speak to us. While most people take the ability to communicate normally for granted, for millions of Americans who currently suffer from speech and language problems, verbal communication is no trivial feat, and as a result, virtually every aspect of life is made more difficult than it is for people who don’t suffer from such problems. Friendships are harder, finding and keeping a job is harder, and the list just goes on and on. Children find life especially challenging. Thankfully, there are places like the NYC speech and language therapy practice of Stacey Miller, SLP, where kids ages 0 to 18 can go to find help.

As the science of speech and language therapy has progressed over time, a great many different pathologies have been identified — each one with its own unique course of treatment. Here at the NYC speech and language therapy practice of Stacey Miller, SLP, we give each of our patients a comprehensive screening at their first appointment in order to diagnose their unique difficulties and design a unique treatment plan accordingly. Some of the conditions we’ve helped people deal with include expressive and receptive language disorders, articulation errors, feeding difficulties and learning disabilities. In addition, we also help children with dealing with hearing impairment learn to communicate with sign language. We also conduct individual and group therapy sessions both in patients’ homes and in our office.

How do you know if your child might need our services? The key is being able to recognize some behavioral signs as your child grows and develops after birth. For instance, by the time your child reaches 12 to 18 months of age, they should be able to understand at least some words and directions.

If you notice that your child fails to make this milestone (or others, which are listed elsewhere on this site), then you should definitely get in touch with us. Setting up an appointment is easy. Just call us at 646-525-4817 or use our online scheduler.
