Speech and Language Services

Speech and language services are for those individuals who have speech and/or language disorders. A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds, whereas a language disorder refers to a difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Therapy involves a speech-language pathologist working with an individual on a one-to-one basis or in small groups to overcome difficulties involved with a specific disorder. S.E.E.D.S. provides therapy for individuals with the following disorders.
