Certified Orofacial Myologist
When It Comes To Your Family...
For over 30 years, we have been treating children for speech, language, and orofacial myofunctional disorders. I have seen my patients grow into adults. Some of them we keep in touch with to this day.
We know what works and what doesn't when it comes to therapy. Because we have watched and seen many of my patients grow up, we know how patients respond to treatment and how avoid relapses later in life.
Our background in orofacial myology sets us apart as we are able to treat root causes in speech problems. We can treat people who have problems at the source of speech...your mouth, lips, tongue and all the muscles of the face that can affect proper speaking.
Take a look at how I help children and families throughout Plainview NY and the surrounding areas with speech, language, and orofacial issues. If you are looking to use your insurance plan, GREAT! Go here and tell us more about your insurance coverage.
Milestones and More
A child not reaching their speech or language milestones may have problems not related to speech or language. In addition to speech and language therapy, we are also certified in orofacial myology. Orofacial myology is the study and treatment of the oral and facial muscles as they relate to speech, dentition, chewing/bolus collection, swallowing, and overall mental and physical health.
Why is this important? Because the root cause of your child not meeting speech milestones may have nothing to do with speech or language. It may have to do with your tongue or facial muscles not being able to form words properly.
And you shouldn't just see us because of missed speech milestones. We help children and adults with tongue tie, tongue thrust, chewing, swallowing, breathing and sleeping better. Call us today and learn more!
Are you concerned your child may not be meeting their speech or language milestones? Take a look at this NIDCD checklist. If your child is not meeting one or more of these milestones contact us today.
