Big Kids

From the youngest big kids to teens, we can help. 

Your child may be having difficulties related to

speech, language, or literacy for the first time. Sometimes challenges don't appear until the school-age years and sometimes they aren't apparent until the later grades. Or, a difficulty was noticed in earlier years but it was thought they may outgrow the issue. Other children already have a known difficulty, difference, or diagnosis and are in need of support and service.
