Fox River Grove, IL – The strong love of a parent towards a child makes it only natural for them to want nothing but the best for them. This means ensuring they have everything they need to live normal, happy, fulfilling lives. However, this is not always the case, as some medical issues or other complications sometimes lead to childhood difficulties in speaking or eating. Nevertheless, children with such complications can still be afforded the help they need by seeking assistance from qualified professionals. Providing such assistance is precisely why Functional Speech Therapy Co. began its operations many years ago. The clinic is home to reputable pediatric speech and feeding therapists with a reputation for consistently placing their patients’ interests and well-being above everything else. 

“Functional Speech Therapy was brought into our lives after my son was evaluated through Early Intervention. The speech was 1 out of the three therapies recommended for my son. My son has been in early intervention for over a year now. I am extremely grateful that my son received speech therapy with Marianna and Lauren. As a parent, you really get to know the therapists that come into your home. My son started with 0 vocabulary and is now putting 3-4 words together. It has been an amazing, grateful, heartwarming experience to watch my son flourish,” commented one happy parent about the clinic’s therapies. 

Several conditions can result in speech or eating disorders in children. These conditions include but are not limited to cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, intellectual disability, childhood apraxia of speech, autism spectrum disorder, and learning disorder. For a regular parent, it may be difficult to pinpoint which particular condition their child is suffering from. This makes it challenging to know which help is the most appropriate. The good news is that Functional Speech Therapy Co. provides free evaluations at the clinic. Alternatively, parents can use some evaluation materials from the clinic’s website before scheduling an appointment for a professional diagnosis. 

The clinic’s care providers recommend that parents take appropriate action as soon as they notice signs of difficulty in their child’s development. According to them, some tell-tale signs to look out for include difficulties chewing or swallowing food, articulation problems, difficulty comprehending sounds or words at certain ages, and difficulty playing or communicating with other children. Functional Speech Therapy Co. provides early intervention services for children under three years and regular intervention for those under eighteen. 

Parents who take their kids to Functional Speech Therapy Co. can rest assured that they will receive world-class individualized treatments from caring professionals. For flexibility and convenience, the clinic’s treatments are in three forms; in-home, clinic-based, and via teletherapy. Visit the clinic’s website for more from Functional Speech Therapy Co.
