Speech Therapy in Gresham, OR
 
Speech and Language Pathologists help children develop and improve language, communication, cognitive processing, and social skills. A child's speech and communication is the foundation for all peer and adult interaction. Speech is not only what a child says, but how they play and gesture, what language they understand and what information they can convey. Speech Therapists evaluate and treat children of all ages with disorders ranging from mild delays in development to severe communication delays and syndromes. Treatment is typically one-on-one and may involve augmentative technology or be facilitated with the use of sensory equipment. Speech therapists also train patients, families, and caregivers, as well as collaborating with other health care professionals.
