Speech-Language Pathology Services

What is Speech Language Pathology?

Our pediatric speech language pathology (SLP) program helps your child develop the skills needed for successful communication and feeding. These skills can affect all aspects of daily life, from communicating basic needs to developing social skills and friendships to progress in school. Our certified speech language pathologists have master's degrees and extensive training in childhood speech, feeding and language problems.

Who is a Candidate for SLP?

After discussing your child's developmental level with your pediatrician, if you have concerns in one or more of the following areas, a referral to SLP services may be recommended:

How Do I Get Started?

Identifying your child’s difficulties and strengths through a speech and language evaluation is the first step to assisting a child with communication problems. Our therapists are skilled in administering formal tests as well as providing clinical observation of play, interaction and conversation to decide if your child needs intervention.

Contact our Patient Access Service Center at 727-767-7272 to schedule an appointment for a SLP evaluation.

For many years All Children's has been a Scottish Rite Foundation Center for Childhood Language Development.
