Speech Therapy from Neuro Therapeutic Pediatric Therapies, Inc.

Pediatric speech therapy is a skilled intervention used to help children communicate. It focuses on developing any and all skills necessary to express and comprehend communicative messages in all areas of a child’s world.

Our belief is that speech therapy should be a fun and engaging experience which leads each child to become an active participant in the process. It is important that as a child develops the skills to become confident communicators, they see communication as a useful and enjoyable activity.

  • Our Speech-Language Pathologists are licensed in Oregon and certified by the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA) to assess, diagnose, and treat children with communication disorders.
  • Using innovative, evidence-based intervention strategies, treatment sessions are tailored to fit the specific needs of each individual child by taking into consideration their unique difficulties, strengths, and motivations.
