Speech therapy helps your child succeed in speech and language. With the right clinical approach, Alphabet Soup’s speech therapists help your child finally communicate with the world. Empower your child with the full power of language so they can show their authentic, confident self to the world. 

Disorders We Treat

Alphabet Soup helps pediatric patients living with a variety of speech disorders.

Apraxia of speech (AOS)

AOS is a motor planning disorder. AOS prevents your child from planning and producing the correct sequence of movements for intelligible speech. Your child knows the correct words, but when they try to articulate those words, their mouth is unable to form the words.

Articulation disorders

Articulation disorders cause difficulty with pronunciation. Articulation disorders cause your child to make omissions, deletions, or word substitutions. This makes it difficult for others to understand your child when they try to communicate.

Tongue thrust

Tongue thrust happens when a child doesn’t develop a mature swallow. As a result, they rest their tongue against their front teeth. This can not only lead to misaligned front teeth, but also a lisp if left untreated.

Other disorders

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Seizure disorder
  • Autism
  • Pervasive Development Disorder (PDD)
