Speech-Language Pathology

Connecticut Children’s pediatric speech-language pathologists specialize in assessing and treating children (age 0-18) affected by:

  • Articulation/phonological disorders
  • Autism and pervasive developmental disorders
  • Brain injury
  • Cognitive disorders (attention/memory)

  • Dysphagia (swallowing or feeding problems)

Many infants and children affected by craniofacial anomalies, traumatic brain injuries and other neurological and developmentally-based illnesses may suffer from communication or swallowing disorders that can influence early learning, self-esteem and parent-child bonding.
