How to Decrease Your Child's Frustration with Communication Issues

The ability to communicate with others and to express oneself is difficult for children with speech, language, and hearing disorders. As noted by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, speech-language deficits are the most common of childhood disabilities and affect about 1 in 12 children. If left untreated, these disorders can negatively affect a child's ability to interact with others and their ability to succeed academically and professionally. Speech-language therapists and audiologists can assist children with these disorders. It is often most effective to identify and treat disorders as early as possible, but the services can be provided throughout the lifespan.

Please contact us if you are concerned about the development of your child's speech and language but do not know where to start or how to incorporate speech therapy into your busy schedule. Tidewater Speech Therapy provides free phone consultations for parents and in-school therapy sessions for children. That's right! You will no longer have to drive your child to speech therapy sessions because we will provide private, customized sessions at the school. To learn more, give us a call at 757-439-4010!
