Feeding and swallowing therapy encompasses many aspects of how and what we are able to eat.

At Think Say Move, we are here to make meal times enjoyable and inclusive for the whole family.
Children like to yell, and that’s a fact (I’m sure it’s in an academic journal somewhere). Sometimes, the yelling can lead to voice disorders. Voice therapy can help your child use strategies to help regulate their voice to avoid vocal abuse. Some children develop structures within the vocal cords such as polyps or nodules that prevent adequate vocal cord vibration. Often times these structures are removed and voice therapy is utilized to strengthen the vocal cords to support voice production.
This treatment focuses on WHAT we say and WHAT we understand. Whether you feel your child isn’t able to express themselves at an age appropriate level (including pre-language skills) or unable to understand or follow age appropriate information, we can work on skills and strategies to help make your child successful in the classroom and throughout their world.
Executive functions are skills we use day to day that help us manage our responsibilities. These skills include; time management, planning, flexible thinking, attention, self-monitoring, and working memory. Without these skills, school and work can be challenging, but we can give your child the skills and strategies to be successful.
When children or adults struggle because they stutter, it can impact more than just their speech. Talking to others including the child's friends or teachers can be hard, stressful, and frustrating. Speech therapy can improve their fluency and communicating attitudes to give them the confidence they need to effectively communicate in their environments.
Social language skills or pragmatic skills include all the “rules” of language such as, greetings, turn taking in conversation, and how to use facial expressions and eye contact. Sometimes children have a difficult time with these rules and speech therapy can be an amazing tool to work on these skills. Pragmatic language can improve social connections with the people closest to them and help in other social situations.
