What is Speech Therapy?

At Jackson Jade, a speech pathologist will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to assess the child's speech and language skills, including articulation (speech sounds), expressive and receptive language (verbal and nonverbal communication), pragmatics (social communication), feeding & swallowing, and any other areas of concerns.

Based on the assessment results, the speech pathologist will develop individualized goals and a treatment plan tailored to your child's specific needs. Treatment activities in speech therapy are age appropriate and selected based on your child's interests to ensure your child succeeds.

Parents also play a crucial role in the child's speech therapy journey at Jackson Jade. The speech pathologist will provide guidance, strategies, and resources to support the child's progress at home.
