Balog Speech & Language Center is a pediatric speech-language pathology clinic specializing in the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders in infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children. Treatment is offered in Dr. Balog's clinic which offers a comfortable environment that is parent and child friendly. This setting provides a naturalistic context for speech and language therapy.
Clients and their parents can expect to receive speech-language pathology treatment that is family focused with an emphasis on parent training and support. All treatment is provided within the context of evidence based practice, which means that there are research or data to support the evaluation and treatment methods being used.
Benefits of speech and language treatment include early intervention for infants and toddlers.This means your child will get important treatment before preschool or Kindergarten. Treatment often focuses on increasing vocabulary growth, speech sound development if speech is unclear, and the understanding of language. For school-age children treatment often supplements their academic needs. For example, reading and writing, speech sound development, grammar, and vocabulary, to name a few. For all children, a speech and language evaluation will include a comprehensive assessment of all their communication skills. This includes: articulation and phonology, grammar and morphology, communicative function, vocabulary use, and much more.
