It's Time to Confirm for Fall!

As we're sure you do, we experience a different kind of rhythm during the summer months. Life is more laid back, more fluid, more flexible. We're sad to see it end, like so many of our families. Now that school is starting back, it's time to look ahead toward the fall. Please consider your needs and confirm your sessions for the new school year.
Coming Soon:
Superhero Week!


Calling All Superheroes! 

September 11-15 is
Superhero Week at Kid's Creek! 

Wear your superhero gear all week long!

Now Available: Intensive Speech Programs

Kid's Creek Therapy is happy to offer Speech Connections, intensive speech therapy programs for children with childhood apraxia of speech and those with cleft palate. Speech Connections programs are available for both current and new patients, and are a good option for families who live too far away from our office to schedule regular appointments. Learn more about each of these programs below, and  visit our Intensive Program page  for downloadable brochures on each program as well as information for Traveling Families.

Apraxia Intensive Program
Our Apraxia Intensive Program uses evidence-based techniques in an individualized program to elicit correct speech production in children with childhood apraxia of speech. The program  is available in either one- or two-week sessions. All participants will receive a home program and a treatment summary at the completion of the session.

Cleft Palate Intensive Program
Our Cleft Palate Intensive Program uses evidence-based techniques to teach children with cleft palate and/or velopharyngeal dysfunction the correct way to say speech sounds. This program benefits children with repaired and unrepaired clefts, submucous clefts, and palate weakness related to nerve damage. Within group settings, it will give children a chance to interact with peers with similar craniofacial anomalies.  The programs are available in either individual or group format for children of a variety of ages and stages of cleft palate repair. 

Call us at 770-888-5221 or inquire at the front desk for more information
about either of our Speech Connections programs.
