What is Speech Therapy?

FYZICAL Pediatric of Cordele provides therapy specifically tailored to delays in speech and language, stuttering, voice quality, social communication skills, and feeding issues for pediatric patients. 

Our speech therapists work hard to help patients develop strong speaking skills as well as refine volume and quality of voice. They can help decrease issues patients have with eating, drinking, swallowing, and communicating.

If you or your child are struggling with an issue that is impairing your speaking capabilities, contact our Pediatric Center in Cordele today to learn more about how speech therapy may benefit your condition.

Children may experience delays that make it difficult for them to interact, explore and play. Our speech therapists at our Pediatric Center in Cordele work with families to create a unique plan of treatment to help a child grow!

Areas pediatric speech therapy can strengthen:

Speech therapy encourages children to develop effective speaking and listening skills, to support social communication skills, and to improve pediatric feeding skills. It also helps children interact with other children and adults with confidence.

Treatment at our Pediatric Clinic focuses on the following issues in children:

  • Any feeding/swallowing issues, including tube feeding
  • Difficulty talking that makes it hard for others to understand the child
  • Difficulty expressing thoughts or identifying common objects or people
  • Difficulty following directions or understanding questions
  • Difficulty with interacting with other people
  • Muscle weakness or tightness of the mouth or throat
  • Changes in the quality of voice

What to expect at your child’s first appointment:

Our speech therapists at our Pediatric Center evaluate and treat speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing problems. Whether your child is experiencing issues relating to a developmental delay, a learning disorder, or a medical condition or injury, our team can work with their family to improve their skills.

When your child arrives for the initial consultation, a speech therapist will conduct a simple interview and examination to determine the best possible treatment plan for that patient’s specific needs.

One of our speech therapists will work with your child in a relaxed, friendly setting on a series of treatment activities. Speech therapy can range from tasks that strengthen the muscles of the face, tongue, and throat to vocabulary development and even social communication skills like making eye contact when speaking to others.
