Speech & Language Therapy

Optimizing your child’s communication skills

As part of the comprehensive therapy programs offered at DMG Children’s Rehabilitative Services (DMG CRS), our team includes experienced speech language pathologists (SLP).  These pediatric speech and language therapists will evaluate your child’s verbal and non-verbal communication skills and create a plan to develop those skills to the maximum of your child’s abilities based on age and medical conditions.  Treatment plans are designed to help improve linguistics and oral speech skills, as well as identify alternative methods of communication if speech is not feasible.
