Speech & Language Therapy Sessions

Every child is unique and no one therapy approach fits every child. FUNctional Speech + Language LLC utilizes multiple techniques and evidence-based practices to meet the child's needs individualizing their treatment plan. We take a family centered approach that includes hands-on parent training, leading to greater overall improvement in a child's communication and interaction skills. 

Home-based therapy sessions are either 30, 45, or 60 minutes depending on the child's needs including direct intervention with the child, parent coaching,

and written session notes. 30 minute teletherapy sessions are also available.
