Services

Experience Quality Comprehensive Care

The CCD offers a broad range of speech-language pathology services. If your service is not explicitly listed on the website, please call our office to verify if we are able to provide treatment for your disorder or deficit.

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) includes all the strategies a person uses to communicate feelings and thoughts without talking.

Therapy might consist of working to increase attention skills, devising or using memory strategies, working on specific problem-solving strategies, or a number of other personalized interventions.

We provide feeding and swallowing therapy in the form of completing evaluations in order to make diet texture recommendations and
determine whether compensatory strategies are appropriate.

At the CCD, we treat both children and adults with fluency disorders, most commonly stuttering. 

We provide comprehensive aural rehabilitation services to those with mild, moderate, or profound hearing loss.

At a receptive and expressive language appointment, our clinicians will evaluate where your child is developmentally and then devise a therapy plan.

At your child’s first speech sound production appointment, we begin with a thorough evaluation which involves listening to your child’s speech, in particular the sounds they are producing well and the sounds they are struggling to produce. 

Our clinic is able to complete screening and assessment and can also provide therapy for social communication disorders. 

At your first voice and resonance appointment, we begin with a thorough evaluation which involves listening to your voice, talking with you about your speaking habits, and taking measurements of your voice characteristics.
