East Harlem Learning Disability

A child’s acquisition of speech and language abilities is a natural developmental process that all children go through with varying degrees of difficulty. For most children speech is developed within the normal time period but for some children there maybe more significant problems developing language and a delay in the time frame of when that language development occurs. Language development can be delayed even further if the child has an East Harlem learning disability.

For those children that do have an East Harlem learning disability individual speech therapy with a licensed Speech Language Pathologist such as our practices’ Stacey Miller, SLP can help them overcome their learning disability and smooth the acquisition of language. The intervention starts with our SLP conducting a complete and comprehensive evaluation of the child’s communications skills, which includes an assessment of their oral motor abilities as well as formal and informal testing and observations. From this evaluation a written report will be generated and a comprehensive therapy plan will be developed. For those children who will benefit from individual speech therapy our therapist will schedule either, 30-, 45- or 60-minute sessions that will hone in on their specific needs. For instance, expressive and receptive language delays where the child is having difficulty making ideas or needs known as well as having trouble following directions or with basic understanding. Oral motor delays and feeding difficulties are addressed with the aid of specific exercises and massage techniques. Our SLP will also work with children with learning disabilities on articulation, the ability to make specific sounds, which maybe impaired due to the movement of the lips, tongue, velum or pharynx.

Our therapist also works with children that have an East Harlem learning disability in a group setting. Socialization groups help those children that have difficulty in building friendships due to social and pragmatic delays in language development. If you suspect your child is having difficulty or is delayed in developing speech and language call our office for an evaluation appointment.

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.
