The Bloomfield Institute of Therapy Pediatric Center is here to help enhance the quality of your child's life by improving their ability to communicate with family members and peers, so that they may reach their full potential. Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy provides assessment and treatment of your child's communication skills. These include speech, language, play, and interaction development. The focus of treatment may be on oral-motor skills, stuttering, tongue thrust, voice, language, articulation, or augmentative communication.
If your child has not been evaluated for speech and language skills, The Bloomfield Institute of Therapy Pediatric Center is a great place to start! In our friendly, playful environment, we offer comprehensive speech and language assessments which are performed to determine whether or not communication skills are developing typically, and whether or not professional intervention is warranted.
