Kids go through a lot in their young lives. Not only do they grow a considerable deal, but they do a lot of personal development as well. As kids get older, they learn how to be a person as well as how to be their own person, and one of the key parts of expressing and understanding oneself as well as others is through speech. Speech issues are not that uncommon for kids, but children who experience difficulties should definitely get help. For toddler speech therapy in NYC, our expert speech pathologist Stacey Miller, SLP can help.

Stacey Miller, SLP has almost a decade’s worth of experience working with kids, treating speech and learning disabilities. She also has extensive experience with sensory integration which can be incorporated into specialized treatments and one-on-one sessions. There is no “one size fits all” treatment when it comes to things like this, so Stacey takes a personal approach to every situation. No matter what treatment will ultimately be best for your child, she always provides one-on-one sessions at the start to get to know your child, the way they think, what they respond best to, and what needs to be done to help them. This way, she can curate a specialized approach to help your child in the best and most comprehensive way possible. With her practice, Stacey aims to provide individualized, high-quality speech therapy services to children, ages 0 to 18 in all manner of related developmental issues and related concerns. There are plenty of concerns that may warrant speech therapy but one of the most common is issues with articulation, which is the production of speech sounds. An articulation disorder may be present when a child does not or cannot make speech sounds correctly due to incorrect placement or movement of the lips, tongue, velum, and/or pharynx, but toddler speech therapy in NYC can help.

Speech and a highly developed ability to communicate is part of what makes human beings human. Speech and language development is something that is based on the infant’s innate ability but is cultivated and crafted through exposure to outside stimuli and instruction. Sometimes the child needs help mastering speech development and expressive language and it is the mission of our language therapist in NYC to assist children from 0 – 18 in acquiring and perfecting their ability to speak. Stacey Miller, SLP has been helping children with speech and language problems as well as associated learning problems for over a decade, working with children who have moderate to severe learning disabilities and sensory integration issues.

Our language therapist in NYC begins working with each new patient by first doing a comprehensive evaluation of the child language and speech skills. The assessment includes an oral motor assessment, feeding evaluation as well as formal and informal testing and observations in all of the child’s environments. A written report with recommendations is presented to the parents and our therapist will discuss her findings in detail. Our therapist will generally work one-on-one with the child in the friendly atmosphere of its own home. These therapy sessions will cover whatever the child’s needs are such as oral motor delays and feeding difficulties, expressive and receptive language or articulation.

Our language therapist in NYC also works with children in groups or among other members of the family. For instance, delays in developing social and pragmatic language skills can cause the child difficulties in developing friendships and interacting in social situations. In a group setting of 2 – 4 children they all learn through creative play to develop social skills such as developing eye contact, initiating conversation, taking turns and other valuable skills. There is a music class for parents and young children between the ages or 2 – 4. Our language therapist also offers adult sign language courses. If your child is having trouble with language development or swallowing please make an appointment with our language therapist.

For many of us, speech is an important part of how we connect to others every day. It is the way through which we communicate, learn and express our ideas. While it is entirely possible to communicate without actually speaking, it can be difficult to feel confident speaking with a lisp or a stutter. Here with our speech therapist in NYC, Stacey Miller, SLP, you can get the lisp treatment or the stutter correction care that you might want for your child if they exhibit either or both of these attributes while speaking.

Having a lisp or a stutter can be frustrating to deal with. As a person with a lisp or a stutter, you may feel worried that other people do not fully understand what you are saying, are not taking you seriously or that they might make fun of you for your speech impediment. Though these are not nice behaviors for anyone to exhibit towards anyone regardless of how they talk, it is still an unfortunate reality that many people have to deal with from day to day. This can be especially troublesome for kids who can be the target of bullying and ridicule. Not only that, but having difficulty speaking and expressing oneself, regardless of how others treat them for it, can be frustrating on its own. Kids may lack confidence because they feel as if they cannot properly express themselves or explain exactly what they are thinking and feeling. Our speech therapist in NYC, Stacey Miller, SLP can help kids overcome these problems with one-on-one lisp treatment or stutter correction.

Before going ahead with any treatment methods or plans, Stacey Miller, SLP will meet with you and your child in order to get to know you first.
