Speech Therapy is one of our multidisciplinary offerings.
Language delays, language disorders, or a lack of ability to use language similarly to same age peers in a social context is a core feature of Autism, and can be seen alongside other developmental disorders.
We offer speech therapy services in-Center because we know that collaboration is key!
