Toms River Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist
Is your child struggling to form words properly, having difficulties with language comprehension, or having other problems with speech, language, reading, or writing? A Toms River pediatric speech-language pathologist at Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC can help them build the language skills they need to thrive.
Speech pathologists assist children with initial speech and language formation, speech comprehension, as well as supporting those struggling with speech issues related to a medical condition or accident. If your child has ADHD, Autism, cleft palate, or other disability or disorder, then it is common for those children to also struggle with language and speech development.
Speech and developmental delays can be scary for both parents and children and can make communication between them difficult. Children can become frustrated by the inability to understand and form language properly. It is easy to think that a child is just being difficult, when there may be more significant issues under the surface.
At Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC, our experienced, compassionate pediatric speech-language pathologists (SLP) are here to help. We not only can help you identify the root cause of your child’s communication impairments; we provide assessments, evaluations, testing, diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment to get them back on the right track to development. We also equip parents with tools, strategies, and techniques they can use to help them better communicate with their struggling child.
Safe teletherapy and online therapy options are available. Call Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC at (732) 783-5539 for a Free Consultation!

Pediatric Speech Pathology
Every child progresses at their own pace, and some may struggle more with some concepts than others. Children often experience challenges with the mechanical and comprehension aspects of language, making it hard to express themselves and communicate with others. This can make forming early relationships more challenging, as well as make it difficult for them to have success in their education. They may act aggressively due to frustration, become emotional or withdrawn due to lack of confidence, or may feel depressed by their inability to understand and be understood by their teachers and peers.
Speech disorders may exist on their own or can be associated with developmental, emotional, or behavioral disorders such as ADHD, anxiety, or autism. Initially, a parent seeks the assistance of a pediatric speech pathologist when they find that their child is not meeting expected milestones.
We have seen the impact our speech therapy has had on our pediatric clients. We have watched their confidence grow as their skills have improved. Our pediatric speech pathologists are excited and motivated to help your child free their voice and improve their life with practical language skills.
