Speech, Language & Swallowing Therapy

Connect Therapy provides one on one speech therapy to clients across all stages of life to improve communication and eating. We strive to provide person-centered therapy. For kids, that means play-based, neurodivergent affirming therapy. For adults, that means a collaborative approach to therapy to help you meet your goals. 

Services for kids


What most people think of when they think about speech therapy. Play based therapy dedicated to learning how to make the correct sounds.

Pediatric Feeding

Feeding therapy includes picky eating, sensory or food aversions, decreasing thumb sucking/pacifier use and swallowing safety. We love to have parents involved in these sessions. We have some food on hand, but food from home is always best!


Language development and literacy go hand in hand, especially in the pre-reading and early reading days. Therapy is dedicated to foundational reading skills.


Stuttering can sound like single sound repetitions or repeating whole words and phrases. Fluency or stuttering therapy teaches strategies to improve flow of speech.

Language Development

We also take a play-based approach to language therapy. Playing is how kids learn best, so we let the kids take the lead on what we play and we provide therapy to improve language development. 


AAC stands for Augmentative and Alternative Communication. These methods replace speech or writing and use pictures or icons to communicate. This can be low tech with pictures or high tech through a tablet.

Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Apraxia of Speech is a motor planning difficulty. Meaning the child will have difficulty saying words and sounds. The child's lips and tongue might not move in the right way to make the sounds.

Parent/Caregiver Training

In our practice, family involvement is a must! As a parent/caregiver, you know your child best and will be spending the most time with them. We will provide lots of education and tangible tools to help continue to develop your child's skills outside of therapy time.

Services for adults


In adults, difficulty or changes in speech is called dysarthria. Dysarthria is common after a stroke or TBI. Also people with Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease, ALS and MS can experience slow or slurred speech.


Swallowing difficulties or dysphagia can be caused by stroke, head and neck cancer, TBI, Multiple Sclerosis , Myasthenia Gravis, ALS, Parkinson's Disease, Cerebral Palsy, GERD, dementia and more. Swallow therapy will include exercise and strategy implementation to help you eat what you want.


Changes in pitch, tone, volume, quality, resonance and respiratory support can be improved with voice therapy. If you have Parkinson's Disease, voice can be impacted. Ask us about LSVT-LOUD to improve voice volume and quality.

Apraxia of Speech

Adult apraxia of speech can occur after brain damage, such as stroke, TBI or brain tumor. SLPs can provide therapy to improve speech and language rehabilitation and train functional communication.


Acquired language loss is called Aphasia. Aphasia can occur after a stroke, TBI, brain tumor, infection and dementia. Adult language therapy is dedicated to improving communication on all levels, including verbal, written, gestures and AAC.


Cognitive-communication is the thought process that help us communicate, including memory, attention, executive functions, visual spatial skills, social language. These skills can be impacted after stroke, TBI, cancer, and any degenerative disease. With degenerative diseases, we can't ensure that cognitive decline won't happen, but we can help to slow it's progression and provide compensatory strategies.


Stuttering can happen after a stroke, TBI, brain tumor or other brain disorders. Therapy is targeted at improving speech fluency.

Caregiver Training

Including caregivers, family and/or partners is crucial for speech therapy success. We love to have family members join during sessions if the clients are comfortable. We know caregivers are helpful for promoting carryover from therapy to home and community.
