For nearly two decades, the Speech and 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.
