Child’s Play + Speech
Integrating our approach
Our speech therapy team addresses delays and disorders of speech sound production, various areas of language, voice, fluency, infant and pediatric feeding/swallowing. While early intervention is advised, our program helps children of all ages overcome their obstacles. If you are concerned with your child’s ability to communicate or eat, it doesn’t hurt to ease your worries with a speech therapy evaluation. At Child’s Play Plus, our speech therapy team works directly with integrated treatment plans and goal setting with the ABA and OT treatment teams, as necessary.
Speech therapy interventions include:
- An individualized evaluation, during which the client, family and speech language pathologist determine the child’s goals.
- Customized intervention program that is evidence-based to improve the child’s ability to perform functional skills and reach their communication or feeding goals.
- Regular progress monitoring to ensure that goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

Did you know that Occupational Therapy helps kids build strength from the center of the body to outer body parts? Your extremities can’t work properly if your core, back, and shoulders are too weak. We build our muscles in the center of the body to help the arms which help the hands and fingers do what they are meant to do!
