SPEECH THERAPY IN SIOUX CITY

   Serving Siouxland with Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy Services for Children.  

Speech Therapy Free Consultation

Does my child need speech therapy?

If you feel your child may not be reaching their age appropriate milestones, we offer free screenings to discuss if your child could benefit from speech and language therapy. Other signs your child may benefit from speech therapy include speech sound errors, being a picky eater, struggling socially or not being able to understand simple sentences.

About Speech and Language Development

Most children develop speech and language skills within specific age ranges, but sometimes children take longer to learn those skills. That's where Childworks Therapy Clinic can help. The proper development and retention of these skills are extremely important for children to be able to communicate and learn efficiently. At times, speech and language disorders can also be key indicators of medical and developmental conditions like Cleft Lip and Palate, ADHD, or Autism Spectrum Disorders. Our licensed and certified Sioux City Speech Pathologists provide assessment and treatment to children experiencing speech/articulation delays, expressive/receptive language disorders, and overall communication deficits. 

During your initial visit, our highly trained speech-language pathologists will evaluate your child's vital and fundamental ability to communicate through formal and informal assessment. Assessments are customized to each child and may include a combination of observations, oral motor examination, language sampling and developmental history. At the conclusion of the assessment, we will share the results and make recommendations for your child that include a measurable treatment plan. The length of time your child may need therapy varies from child to child.
