Early intervention is key.

We at Talk SLP LLC believe
that every individual communicates differently and can face unique challenges when communicating.
Talk SLP LLC considers the
cultural, ethnic, linguistic and social background
of every individual we treat.
Improve your ability to communicate
and you will improve your life.
We can help.
We provide the following services for children and adults of all ages
The first step toward better communication is to detect any communication difficulties that might require more in-depth evaluation.
An extensive assessment of an individual’s speech, language, communication, and swallowing abilities will reveal strengths and weakness and leads to the creation of an effective intervention plan.
Therapy with TALK providers is tailored to your unique needs and goals in a comfortable environment that is interactive and fun.
We collaborate with teachers, psychologists, counselors, vocational coaches, and healthcare/rehabilitative professionals. This team approach allows us to develop and integrate programs and monitor their progress across settings such as daycare, schools, vocational settings, and medical facilities.
Guidance and Instruction
TALK therapists counsel individuals and families about communication development and disorders. We can help with the stress and misunderstanding that often come with communication disorders. We teach individuals and families to spot and change patterns that may slow communication and treatment progress, and we develop communication techniques you can use at home.
