Every child’s needs require different services. For this reason, pricing will be discussed during the initial consultation. Please contact us to schedule a complimentary phone consultation.

We provide therapy in your home, at your child’s daycare or school, or online.

In-person services are currently provided in the following Los Angeles County cities: Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, and the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Online services are available for clients physically located anywhere in California.

Yes, we may treat your child in their daycare or school setting upon coordination with the center. We would love to discuss this further with you during your complimentary consultation.

We highly encourage caregivers to be actively engaged in therapy so that they can learn techniques to use on their own. We also understand that as parents, you are likely very busy. At a minimum, we require an adult to be inside the home at all times during the session and present for feedback at the end of the session. If sessions are conducted at your child’s school, we encourage caregivers to join remotely through our teletherapy platform.

We offer 30-minute and 60-minute sessions including discussion of progress and instruction for home practice. Session frequency is typically 1-2 times per week and is determined by results from your child’s evaluation and discussion with your therapist.
Evaluations are important for making a diagnosis, establishing current strengths and needs, determining the severity of a delay/disorder, and creating a treatment plan. We require an evaluation to begin therapy services. We can conduct a comprehensive evaluation or you may provide a recent evaluation (within a year) as long as the information is still reflective of your child’s current skills.
We will arrive promptly at your home at our appointment time. We kindly ask that you prepare a space in your home (e.g., living room, dining table, playroom) with minimal distractions (e.g., TV off). Please have engaging and motivating toys that your child enjoys available to be used during the session. Your therapist can help you plan these materials. The session will begin with a discussion of goals followed by therapeutic activities. At the end of the session, a verbal summary of clinical impressions will be provided along with activities to be practiced at home. Session time includes caregiver discussion.
The duration of therapy can vary significantly depending on each child’s individual needs and progress. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all duration, as each child’s development is unique. Some factors that can influence the duration of therapy include the severity of the speech or language disorder, the child’s age, their motivation and engagement in therapy, and the consistency of practice outside of therapy sessions. Your therapist will work closely with you to design short and long-term goals and will provide guidance on home activities to support progress.
Speech refers to the way sounds are physically made when we talk. It involves the coordination of various muscles, such as those in the mouth, tongue, and vocal cords. Children with a speech disorder might have difficulty producing sounds correctly, which makes their speech hard to understand. Speech disorders can be related to articulation (sound production), phonology (rules of sound patterns), apraxia of speech (planning and coordination of movements), dysarthria (execution of movements), fluency (flow of speech), voice (pitch, volume, quality), and resonance (how sound energy flows through the oral and nasal cavities). Language refers to how we understand and express meaning through spoken or written communication. There are two main components of language: receptive and expressive language.
  • Children with a receptive language disorder have difficulty understanding the meaning of language. They might have difficulty following directions, answering questions, and understanding parts of a story.
  • Children with an expressive language disorder have difficulty producing language to communicate their thoughts and ideas. They might have a small vocabulary, produce shorter and more basic sentences than expected for their age, and have difficulty with grammar or sentence structure.
Speech and language disorders can occur on their own or together. A speech-language pathologist can assess your child’s communication skills and develop a plan for growth. For more information, click the following links from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA):
