Beyond Word's philosophy is to establish a creative and holistic approach to speech and language therapy so your child can reach his/her greatest potential. Every child has the opportunity for growth when learning is made accessible via creating a positive and nurturing environment, in which sharing knowledge and a love of language is fostered.  Individual speech and language sessions are provided in your child's home, day care and/or preschool setting.  Providing services in a child's natural and familiar environment will help to facilitate generalization of taught skills into daily life. Please explore this site to learn how Beyond Words Speech and Language Therapy can help your child develop his/her speech and language skills.
