Located in Aurora, Denver Metro Area
We love working with kids! Our goal at every speech therapy session is to make it fun and purposeful. Our activities for kids are geared toward engaging hands-on tasks that are skillfully guided which include art projects, games, and cooking. We also offer a variety of language development and social skills groups where kids can grow their skills alongside their peers which is supported by research
At each speech therapy session, a new skill is taught with just the right amount of challenge to avoid frustration and to keep kids happy and learning. A home program is provided at the end of each session to reinforce new skills. It is our pleasure to speak with your child's classroom teacher or other professionals about strategies or prompting techniques to improve your child's skills more quickly.

Speech and Language Development Testing
We do full scale speech and language testing. We offer two price options, one with a formal report and one without, to save you money. When it comes to speech and articulation issues, we can often do a quick test at the first session for the session price, discuss the results, and then plan with you a speech therapy program specific to your child's needs. The same option is also available for language testing. If a report is needed then there is a separate price for that option.

How to Get Free Testing in Aurora, Denver, or Anywhere in Colorado
Parents, you are entitled to have speech therapy services provided by your neighborhood school district for free if your child qualifies. If you have concerns regarding your child's articulation or language development, contact your school district and ask about how to get your child tested. If your child qualifies for speech therapy as defined by the state of Colorado, he or she can receive services from the public school at no cost to you. Districts do not provide services for articulation issues but they may if there is a significant delay in language development (typically a 2 year gap). It's worth checking out!
