Speech Articulation/Phonology

Mr. Marge provides a comprehensive evaluation of speech sound production, an oral mechanism examination, and dynamic assessment to devise an effective treatment plan to address speech articulation and phonological deficits that may be negatively impacting your child’s speech. Mr. Marge has extensive experience treating a variety of speech sound disorders that are the result of apraxia, dysarthria, cleft palate, etc.  

A girl is happy because she can listen and communicate effectively after receiving language therapy.

Receptive and Expressive Language

The key to remediating receptive and expressive language deficits is to determine the precise levels of language processing at which your child’s language is breaking down. An effective treatment plan is determined from the comprehensive evaluation of receptive and expressive language skills.  Auditory comprehension and language expression are critical components that support the highly language-based curriculums found in our public and private schools.
