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 Pediatric Speech Therapist

NYC Pediatric Speech Therapist

Do you feel your child might be struggling with a speech impediment? Our number one NYC pediatric speech therapist, Dr. Stacy Miller, has years of experience in the field and is here to offer her expertise in informing you about some warning signs to look out for. Signs of speech problems differ based on the age of your child. For infants up to six months old, some common symptoms of a speech problem include problems with feeding, lack of eye contact, lack of or no response to sound, lack of interest in speech or making sounds, limited vocalizations from the child, developmental problems, medical problems, difficulties with attachment, and a lack of interest in socialization.

For the next age range of about six to twelve months, the signs include those mentioned for the prior age range plus: limited sound production, using groping movements when trying to make sounds or imitate sounds, excessive drooling, trouble eating solid foods, and lack of interest in toys that make sounds. For children aged one year to a year and a half, their symptoms will include those mentioned before plus being easily distracted, and struggling to understand words or directions given to them. Children older than those age ranges may also exhibit symptoms such as: not using words some of the time in order to communicate with others, not wanting to imitate, not wanting to play games, not combining words, only using nouns, not increasing their vocabulary as they grow older, not using “I” to refer to themselves, and more. If you notice any of these symptoms (for a full listing broken down by age range, please visit our full site) in your child, be sure to contact our NYC pediatric speech therapist. Dr. Miller will work with you and your child directly in order to properly diagnose the problem and tackle it accordingly.
