Suburban Speech Center is a private pediatric speech-language therapy center that has received national and statewide recognition for its outstanding services.

Introducing Our Newest Programs

Pediatric Feeding and Oral Motor Program

Our NEW Pediatric Feeding and Oral Motor Program begins with a comprehensive assessment of the child’s intra-oral mechanism, direct observation of feeding, and trial treatment techniques to determine the child’s prognosis for treatment. An Individualized Feeding Program is developed. Parents are trained to transition the goals into the home environment. Feeding and oral motor therapies help children learn how to eat or how to eat better.

The NEW Fast ForWord®

The NEW Fast ForWord® is a computerized language/auditory processing intervention that uses the principles of neuroplasticity to make fast, permanent changes to your child’s brain – which will make auditory processing, language, learning and reading much easier for your child. Fast ForWord® has been proven by extensive research to help children pay attention longer, process information faster, and comprehend what they’re hearing and reading.
