Meet Our Speech Therapists
At Can Do Kids, located in Cleveland, Tennessee, the speech therapy team targets speech, language, cognitive communication, literacy, swallowing, and social skills. Clients experiencing any of the following may benefit from speech therapy. We service Chattanooga, Ooltewah, Cleveland, Bradley County, Polk County, Athens, and many more surrounding areas.
What is speech language pathology?
Developing communication skills is one of the most important elements to socializing and creating valuable relationships. Speech-language pathologists help clients overcome barriers to communication and eating. Speech-language therapy consists of specialized interventions to allow the client to gain appropriate communication, language, articulation, feeding and oral motor planning skills.
At Can Do Kids, we truly understand your child’s difficulties with speech. We offer assessment and therapeutic solutions to identify and treat their difficulties. The assessment process begins with an all-inclusive examination of the child’s development in the areas of expressive language (speaking and communicating), receptive language (understanding spoken language), pragmatic language (proper social use of language), fluency, articulation, and the oral peripheral speech mechanism. Based upon our assessment, we recommend and offer specific therapeutic solutions that are proven to improve the child’s speech, learning, and language skills
