Articles on Speech, Language and Reading

We have written many in-depth articles on speech, language and reading, with a lay audience in mind, to help you better understand aspects of and issues related to spoken and written language; better understand specific issues that may be affecting you or your child; provide insight into testing procedures and treatment; and, in a number of cases, help you pursue activities at home that will be beneficial to you or to your child.

As we have mentioned elsewhere, if you have any questions at all, we are more than happy to speak with you. So please don't hesitate to pick up the phone or drop us an email.

The index of articles is to your right if you are at a desktop device, or below if you are on a mobile device. The index is also included on every article page, in the same locations.
