Our Philosophy

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.

MSLDC’s united team currently consists of licensed Speech-Language Pathologists, Speech-Language Pathologist Assistants and Child Development Specialists who have education and experience relevant to working with all age groups. MSLDC is currently networked with outstanding Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists.

Our team specializes in treating children and adults who have autistic symptoms, speech and language delays and/or disorders, developmental delays and/or disorders, feeding and swallowing difficulties, vocal pathologies, fluency disorders, traumatic brain injury, motor planning and programming difficulties, a variety of genetic syndromes, and, the deaf and hard of hearing population.

We honor family preferences and strive to make the journey for families comfortable, rewarding and joyful.
