Speech Services Program

Programs for Children up to 3 Years Old

At ICD, we recognize that each child is unique so we work collaboratively with all of our families to ensure that the services we provide are individualized and appropriate for the child’s family culture.

We rely on evidence-based intervention strategies so that your child receives state of the art treatment in a child and family friendly, supportive environment.

We help children who may have speech or language delays or disorders in the areas of:

  •   Articulation (speech sound production)
  •   Fluency (flow and rhythm of speech)
  •   Language comprehension
  •   Expressive language
  •   Pragmatics (social use of language)
  •   Voice

Building your child’s speech and language skills:

  •   Improves your family’s communication with each other
  •   Improves your child’s enjoyment in daily activities
  •   Helps your child develop peer relationships
  •   Fosters learning about the world
