Treatment for Speech Disorders 

We work closely with our clients to pinpoint the root causes of their speech disorders. Fluent speech is built upon several aspects, and a disorder in any one of them can cause serious issues in communication. At Therapeutic Endeavors, we aim to provide attentive care and supportive expertise at all stages of a client’s treatment plan, from beginning to end.

Free Screenings

The screening process is an initial consultation between clients, their caretakers and our clinicians. First impressions are made about the condition or impediment, then it is decided whether or not a full evaluation will be needed to reach a solution. These screenings are always free of cost and obligation, and serve to help you make clearer decisions about what to do.

Thorough Evaluations

This is the stage where we try to pinpoint specific deficits via comprehensive assessments. The better we get to know a client and their individual pathology, the more clearly we can define a path to rehabilitation. We set specific goals to reach, and design a customized Plan of Care to take this endeavor together!

Tailored Treatments

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to treating speech pathologies. We devise therapy sessions according to the needs and goals outlined in your personalized Plan of Care. Treatments are given in a place that is comfortable and familiar to the client, and whenever possible also include parents, caretakers and other close relations to ensure carryover of benefits from therapy into daily life.

We work closely with our clients to pinpoint the root causes of their speech disorders.

Articulation

Abnormal production of speech sounds described by substitutions, omissions, additions or distortions can affect intelligibility.

Fluency

Fluency disorders are characterized by uncommon rate, rhythm, and repetitions when making sounds, syllables, words and phrases. 

Language

Sometimes communication difficulties are rooted in a deficient understanding of the use of spoken, written or other systems of communication.

Cognition

When use of the language itself or the production of sound are not the issue, sometimes cognitive issues can cause serious problems in easy communication. Impairments may interfere with attention span, memory and recall, organization of thoughts, problem solving and reasoning skills, and executive functions. 

Pragmatics

Even when clients have a grasp on the various elements of language, there can still be some trouble when putting them all together in a practical manner. Social cues and grammar are equal constraints that may be difficult to wrestle with for some.

Swallowing and Feeding

Oral motor deficits can have detrimental effects on the pharyngeal, laryngeal and esophageal phases of eating and swallowing.

Voice

A voice disorder is evidenced by atypical sound production caused by lack of control over one’s own vocal quality, pitch, loudness, resonance and/or duration.

Academic Reading and Literacy Tutors

Our academic language tutors seek to fill in the academic gaps students may face after struggling with a more fundamental problem, or who simply may need a little boost to keep up with the rest of their class in school. Whatever the case, Therapeutic Endeavors offers experienced academic tutors in Tallahassee. We will help your student to feel confident with their use and understanding of language. Get in touch with us at (850) 491-5108 to learn more about our tutoring services or summer camps.

Students who have struggled with speech pathologies may find themselves falling behind academically as they focus on treating the root causes with a tutor. On the other hand, communicative deficiencies are not always caused by pathologies. In both instances, sessions with one of our experienced tutors can prove to be just the leg-up needed to catch up to the rest of the class. Therapeutic Endeavors will 

work closely with your student to identify and develop strengths and weaknesses in language comprehensive and use.  We specialize in after school tutoring but are also available by appointments. We exercise patience, compassion and expertise to help you reach your goals!
