Pediatric Speech Therapy

The Weill Cornell Medicine Pediatric Speech Therapy Program facilitates individualized, comprehensive evaluations and treatment for children from 18 months to 18 years of age. We provide services for a wide array of communication needs so that children can reach their communication potential. Our highly trained, enthusiastic professionals work closely with parents to ensure maximized progress and continuity outside of the therapy room. When applicable, our therapists also collaborate with teachers, physicians and related service professionals (including physical therapists, occupational therapists, tutors and/or psychologists).

Disorders that we treat include, but are not limited to:

  • Articulation and phonological speech disorders.
  • Motor speech disorders (developmental apraxia) (with PROMPT-trained therapists on staff).
  • Neurological speech disorders (dysarthria).
  • Tongue thrust (myofunctional disorders).
  • Stuttering and fluency (cluttering).
  • Social language disorders (pragmatic disorders).
  • Expressive and receptive language disorders, including:
    • Word-finding difficulties.
    • Reduced vocabulary.
    • Delayed speech and language development (“late talkers”).
    • Auditory processing disorders (CAPD evaluations are performed collaboratively with audiological components).
  • Concomitant disorders, including:
    • Attention deficit (with and without hyperactivity)
    • Dyslexia
    • Dysgraphia
    • Genetic disorders
    • Sensory integration
    • Pervasive developmental disorders
    • Autism spectrum disorders.
