BIG NEWS! BRIGHTER CONNECTIONS SPEECH THERAPY IS NOW BRIGHTER CONNECTIONS SPEECH AND WELLNESS!
We continue to offer the same quality speech, language and feeding therapy services, but we are excited to provide a new, more holistic approach to treating oral dysfunction and orofacial pain. By addressing the whole body, we can maximize function and minimize pain, because it's all connected!
We offer feeding therapy to address challenges with breastfeeding, bottle feeding and introduction of solid foods. Whether you're concerned about milk transfer, tongue/lip ties, oral aversions or picky eating, we can help! Learn more about our feeding therapy services.
Brighter Connections Speech and Wellness provides effective and engaging telepractice services in the comfort of your own home! Intervention in the natural environment allows you to be a part of your child's progress and aids in carryover of new skills.
We offer structured literacy intervention based on the Orton-Gillingham methodology to support reading, writing and spelling skills. Our specialized training in the area of Speech-Language Pathology allows us to identify and address underlying language and phonological (sound system) weaknesses that are contributing to the child’s reading difficulties, which results in more targeted intervention and faster progress! Perfect for children with dyslexia! Learn more about our literacy services.
Research has proven telepractice to be just as effective as in-person services! Experience success without the stress of having to drive to and from therapy! Learn more about our telepractice services.
