Pediatric speech therapist in Manhattan
When your child needs help with spoken communication, there is no need to worry. Speech therapy is one of the many valuable services that Stacey Miller, SLP offers. So if your child is having difficulties with receptive and expressive language skills, sounding out and forming words, coordinating breathing and speaking, articulation disorder (forming consonant and vowel sounds separately) or stuttering, our pediatric speech therapist in Manhattan can help with evaluation and treatment. Stacey Miller has been proudly working with children in your local community from infancy to 18 years old for nearly a decade through customized speech therapy sessions that work to target the unique needs of each child.
It is important to bear in mind that not all children progress at the same rate and in the same time frame. Typically, there are guide posts that are used to form a baseline for evaluating, but they are just that: guide posts. Speech and language develop over several years with various recognized stages up to about the age of 6. There is no exact answer for what is considered “normal” when it comes to speech development and this is especially so for when talking begins. That is why it is important to have our pediatric speech therapist in Manhattan have an opportunity to evaluate your child when a potential concern is identified.
Rest assured that if it is determined that your child does need our services, it is a good thing to have detected an issue and to be dealing with it. While specific results cannot be guaranteed due to the difference of each child’s unique nature, you can feel completely confident that Stacey will utilize the most effective methods for your child’s speech therapy. The sooner the better, however, when it comes to treatment. Putting things off will not have any positive effect. Please call us today and schedule an appointment with our pediatric speech therapist in Manhattan.
