ICD Speech Language Pathology

Speech-language pathologists (sometimes informally referred to as speech therapists) are educated and trained to assess, diagnose and treat speech, language, cognitive communication, voice, fluency and swallowing disorders. Speech-language pathologists at the ICD are pediatric specialists and work as part of our collaborative team. Our team members offer expertise in a variety of medically-based specialty areas. 
NJ licensed and American Speech-Language-Hearing Association certified speech-language pathologists provide evaluations and treatment recommendations for children experiencing: 
Receptive and Expressive Language Disorders
Motor Speech Disorders [Apraxia and Dysarthria]
Voice Disorders [nodules, vocal abuse/strain, chronic hoarseness]
Paradoxical Vocal Fold Dysfunction
Fluency Disorders [stuttering]
Cleft Palate and/or Resonance Disorders
Hearing Impairment [including cochlear implant]
Post-Traumatic Brain Injury
Dysphagia [eating and swallowing disorders]
Modified Barium Swallow Studies [performed in collaboration with our pediatric radiology colleagues]
Therapy Services may be available for:
Children under the age of 3 years
Children of any age whose speech/language or swallowing disorder requires skilled, medically based treatment
Our treatment goals always include a plan for transition back to community based services as appropriate. Therapy requests for children eligible for or already participating in school-based therapy programs are reviewed on an individualized basis. Services are prioritized for children when a goal is identified that is not already addressed by the current individualized education plan [IEP] or is best addressed in a medical setting. Additional community based referral sources for treatment not available at the ICD can be provided upon request.
