We are open for business both face to face and Telehealth.
The waiting room is closed until further notice to protect the safety of our staff, families and clients.
Families call the office from their car, the therapist meets them outside to get their child and return their child.
If the family is scheduled for an evaluation only ONE parent is allowed and no other children can attend. 

If you been exposed to COVID we ask that you call the office and cancel your appointments.
If your child has to cancel multiple times there is no guarantee that your standing appointment can be saved upon your return.

Myths

  • Speaking 2 or more languages to a child can “confuse” them, so it’s better to only speak 1 language.
  • Young bilingual children are delayed in learning language compared to peers who only speak on language
  • People who are bilingual acquire their two or more languages in childhood
  • Children become bilingual just by listening to people around them speak the second language
  • If your child uses both languages in one sentence, it means they are confused and don’t understand they are learning 2 different languages

Facts

  • All children are capable of learning multiple languages, including children with developmental delays and learning disabilities
  • Bilingualism does NOT cause language delays and has been shown to improve children’s abilities to learn new words, identify sounds, and problem-solve.
  • You can become bilingual at point in your life, whether in childhood or adulthood
  • Learning language is an active process that required many opportunities for children to practice communicating with others
  • When a child uses 2 languages within a sentence, it is called “code-switching”. Code-switching is a normal part of bilingualism and is not a concern.
