Speech

What is the one thing that everyone needs in order to be a success in our world, no matter what their job? Communication.

Communication involves many different means of expression. It can include facial expressions, gestures, body language and, of course, verbal language. We all use expressive language for different purposes – to greet others, ask questions, comment, answer questions, direct others, etc. How we present ourselves and the way we pronounce words gives an important first impression.

The speech pathologists here at Kruse Education Center contribute to helping all the children develop good speech and language skills. Their job involves assessment and possible treatment of speech/language difficulties including: articulation (speech sounds), receptive language (understanding what is said to you), expressive language, fluency (stuttering), voice, apraxia, and total communication (sign language, augmentative communication devices, etc.).

Often, parents have questions about their preschool and school age children. They wonder if they are age appropriate in their speech and language milestones. Feel free to follow any of the links here on the speech webpage to get more information on a number of speech/language topics. Also, you can call or email at any time if you have other questions.
