Speech TherapyOur Speech-Language Pathologists serve children and adults who have speech, language, fluency, voice, feeding and swallowing difficulties; so that they are able to communicate, comprehend, and express themselves; and, manage their feeding and swallowing with greater ease, comfort, and safety. The SLPs at MSLDC incorporate augmentative and assistive technological devices to help children and adults learn, relearn, and communicate.
Occupational TherapyOur Occupational Therapists serve children and adults who have difficulties with their smaller muscles (fine motor skills), sensory integration, poor coordination and balance, limited awareness of their surroundings, difficulties attending, difficulties with feeding, eating, swallowing, under sensitivity or over sensitivity to sound, touch, sight, taste, and smell; so that they can function adaptively, independently, and appropriately within their environments.
Child DevelopmentOur Child Development Specialists serve children who have delays and/or deficits in the areas of cognition, communication, social-emotional skills, physical development and adaptive skills development; so that they can help children make positive changes developmentally within all 5 domains.
Our philosophy is to focus on an individual’s abilities. We believe that “the magic of intervention is interaction” and when the correct approach is used to help with the difficulties one is experiencing, progress is eminent. Evidence-based practice which is also relationship-based is a component that is at the core of our philosophy. It takes a mixture of science, art and heart to help individuals progress to their fullest potential.
The basic philosophy underlying all of the MSLDCs programs is that the earlier a problem is identified and tackled, the easier it is for a person to manage the problem. Also, lasting changes occur more readily if the family is involved in the process of therapeutic management.
