  • Each speech therapist has their strengths and unique offerings. Some specialize in working with younger children, a few are bilingual, and others have perfected working with families virtually or at their homes, just to name a few.
  • These places offer high quality speech, language, and feeding therapy. Their programs include free consultations, early interventions and evaluations. They support children (and some also support adults) with autism disorders, articulation disorders, apraxia, and other conditions. And if necessary, they’ll introduce alternative communication methods, also called Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). 
  • We put together this list by surveying parents, talking to professionals for recommendations, reading hundreds of reviews, and interviewing the finalists.
