Pediatric Speech-Language Therapy Program at Spaulding Outpatient Rehabilitation at Kent Hospital Pediatric
Parents of children and young adults diagnosed with speech-language delays, disorders and disabilities, know how difficult it can be watching your child struggle to communicate. We work hand-in-hand with families, physicians and specialized clinicians to make sure your child gets the support and state-of-the-art services they need to succeed.
We use a team-based approach to work with patients and families. We also evaluate adults with developmental disabilities who are either non-verbal or have limited verbal skills.
Our program provides comprehensive treatment strategies for children who need alternative or enhanced means of communication through devices. Our clinicians have advanced training and experience working with a variety of diagnoses, including:
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
- Genetic Syndromes
- Articulation and Motor Speech Disorders
- Voice Disorders
- Neurological Disorders
- Expressive and Receptive Language Disorders
- Phonological Disorders
- Craniofacial abnormalities
- Semantic and/or Pragmatic Language Disorders

Speech Language Therapy Activities
In speech and language therapy at Spaulding, we work with your child using a variety of strategies. These can include language intervention activities and articulation activities in which our team models proper pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary for your child. We work with your child using toys, objects, pictures, and books to make learning and repetitive practice fun.
