Creating Pathways Pediatric Therapy strives to offer evidence based therapy that we want your child to enjoy. When following a child centered approach, Speech/language therapy can be fun! Arming yourself with the most up-to-date information possible when deciding whether-or-not your child is in need of speech/language therapy is essential. In conjunction with a formal speech/language evaluation, we recommend gaining information regarding your child's skills and needs from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
