Speech and Language Therapy

It is very important for children to be able to make friends, communicate with friends and family, express their wants and desires, eat with family and peers and generally participate in family and community life. Beckman & Associates provides treatment for infants to teens as well as some adults. Our therapists specialize in children with difficulties in:

  • Reading
  • Auditory Comprehension
  • Bruxism (Grinding Teeth)
  • Oral Sensitivity
  • Picky Eaters
  • Delayed Talking
  • Poor Vocabulary Development
  • Kindergarten Readiness
  • Early Fluency

Our staff possess a multitude of specialty certifications in state-of-the-art applications. All our Speech Therapists are trained in Beckman Oral Motor Intervention techniques. These are special techniques that Debra Beckman has, since 1975, worked to develop. These are specific interventions which provide assisted movement to activate muscle contraction and to provide movement against resistance to build strength. The focus of these interventions is to increase functional response to pressure and movement, range, strength, variety and control of movement for the lips, cheeks, jaw and tongue.

Our center does offer bilingual speech therapy. Many of our therapists use American Sign Language and PECS to assist in the communication process as well.

We are dedicated to meeting all of our clients' ever-changing needs, and to treating our patients to the best of our abilities. When it's your child, your family member, or your patient who needs therapy, you seek the experts you can trust. We invite you to visit our clinic, take a tour, and experience the atmosphere of expert, caring interaction among staff and patients. We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you might have!
