Services > Speech Therapy

Is your child struggling with speech? Do not take it lightly! Disorders like Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Dysarthria, Speech Sound Disorders, Stuttering, and language-based learning difficulties can be medically concerning problems. Addressing speech and language disorders in early childhood can be crucial to establishing foundational communication skills before school.

 

At Milemarkers, we truly understand your child’s difficulties with speech. We offer assessment and therapeutic solutions to identify and treat their difficulties. Our speech therapy services are provided by licensed and board-certified speech-language pathologists and certified speech-language pathology assistants. Speech-language pathology services are provided for a wide variety of communication disorders. We provide therapy for clients with articulation/speech disorders, phonological disorders, apraxia, oral motor impairments, language disorders, hearing loss, cochlear implants, cleft palate, myofunctional therapy (tongue thrust), fluency (stuttering), feeding difficulty, and those needing alternative and augmentative communication systems.

We strongly believe in establishing a functional communication system as quickly as possible through the use of words, gestures, sign language, PECS, and speech-generating computers while working towards our ultimate goal of verbal communication.

Speech & Language Development – Parent Checklist

If you have any questions about your child’s speech development, browse our parent checklist below and give us a call today.

How can my child begin?

Call us at 928-854-5439.  All therapy services must be recommended and referred through a primary care physician. Once our office receives a doctor’s script and prior authorization (only applicable for certain insurances) we will schedule an intake meeting. During the intake meeting, you will complete all necessary paperwork and schedule your initial evaluation with a therapist. At the evaluation appointment, the therapist will evaluate areas of strengths and needs to determine if ongoing services are necessary.
