About

For nearly two decades, the speech/language specialists at Seven Bridges Therapy have been helping toddlers to young adults with all types of communication challenges.

We work with children of all ages such as:

  • 2-year-olds learning to say their first words,
  • 5-year-old non-verbal autistic children learning to “express themselves” with their iPad,
  • 8-year-olds learning to say “R” sounds more clearly, or
  • Adolescents learning to navigate social situations with greater confidence.
