  • Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive. Receptive disorders refer to difficulties understanding or processing language. Expressive disorders include difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way
  • Cognitive language disorders

Once we receive the order for therapy services from your physician, your initial consultation will be scheduled. Your therapist will review your history and work with you to evaluate your problems, strengths/weaknesses and areas of concern. This initial assessment, combined with your personal goals, will serve as the baseline for developing an appropriate and highly individualized treatment plan. We provide services for all ages and diagnosis.

When you contact our office, you will speak to Geri Craddock who will be happy to answer your questions or schedule, an appointment, 719-738-5155.
