I am a Speech-Language Pathologist who has been practicing for 10+ years. I have experience working with children ages 3 and up.
Therapist in Laurel, MD
I primarily work with children who have speech and language delays or disorders. This means that they are not developing communication skills in the way that is expected for their age. This can affect their ability to perform in school, at home, and in the community.
Very young children learn through play. That is why when working with preschool-aged children, much of the therapy is weaved into play-based activities. Of course, with older children or adults, this technique would not be utilized, however, the underlying principles still apply. My approach to therapy is to make it as functional and readily applicable to life as possible. This encourages the carryover of the skills into everyday life.
