Speech Therapy Specialties
Here at Voz Speech Therapy, our speech therapists are trained in all facets of speech therapy. However, below you’ll find some of the areas of speech therapy we specialize in.
Communication is about giving and receiving. If you have an expressive disorder, it means you have difficulty with expressing ideas – through speech, writing, etc. And if you have a receptive disorder, you have difficulty with understanding others’ expression – through listening, reading, etc. These include aphasia, language delays, and social pragmatic language disorders. We can help.
If you or your child have difficulty creating certain sounds, it may be a result of a speech sound disorder. These are disorders that affect your ability to make the sounds necessary for speech. They can affect both children and adults of any age. Some of the more common ones include dysarthria, selective mutism, childhood apraxia of speech, and acquired apraxia of speech. Voz Speech Therapy can help.
If you notice your child isn’t progressing as expected, meeting the appropriate milestones, it’s a good idea to get them evaluated as soon as possible. Early intervention in speech and language issues has been shown to produce much better results than waiting until they’re older. This is because some critical brain development happens during those early years. Voz Speech Therapy’s early intervention can help.
Have you noticed your child has difficulty breastfeeding, or is struggling to make certain sounds? Or, have you noticed you have a difficult time with swallowing? If so, it may be an orofacial myofunctional disorder. These disorders include tongue thrust, tongue tie, speech distortion errors, dental abnormalities and more. The good news is that speech therapy treatments can correct these disorders.
Stuttering and cluttering are considered fluency disorders. These are disorders that affect your ability to speak. In most cases, you know exactly what you want to say, but you either have difficulty actually saying it (stutter) or you have speech that comes out bunched together and poorly organized, making it difficult to understand you (clutter). These can be frustrating to deal with, but speech therapy can help.
About The Voz Speech Therapy Clinic
If you’ve dealt with a speech or language disorder your entire life, you know how frustrating it can be.
Maybe you were diagnosed at a young age, and ongoing therapy is what’s kept it in check.
Maybe you just figured it out recently, and it was a light bulb moment as you realized why you’ve always felt so different from your peers.
Or maybe it’s not you at all, but your child. You’ve noticed they haven’t been progressing the way the doctors and the mommy blogs said they should, and you’re getting concerned.
Either way, at Voz Speech Therapy, we’re here to help.
Founded in 2018, Voz Speech Therapy is a full service bilingual speech language pathology clinic serving the DC Metro area, as well as residents of Maryland and Virginia. If you or your child are dealing with a speech or language disorder, we can help.
Our Speech Therapy Services
At Voz Speech Therapy, we offer speech and language therapy services for adults and children of all ages.
Are you noticing your child isn’t hitting the expected developmental milestones? Have they shown some early signs of a speech or language disorder? Or have you always struggled with certain areas of speech or language, but never received a diagnosis? If so, the first step is a speech therapy evaluation. We’ll find out what the root cause of your symptoms are and offer you a treatment plan to address it.
Is your child struggling to learn to read and write? Do they seem reluctant to talk or communicate? Do they have trouble creating certain sounds with their speech? If so, speech therapy for children can help. Through working with a pediatric speech therapist, your child will learn to overcome or work around their speech or language disorder, giving them the best chance at developing a strong, confident voice.
When it comes to speech therapy for adults, it usually falls into two categories. Either you have a speech disorder you were born with but were never treated for, or you or a loved one has experienced an event that alters their ability to communicate. Whatever it is that’s causing your concerns, however, speech therapy for adults can help you overcome your disorder and communicate clearly .
If your child has a speech, language, or feeding disorder, it can be a stressful experience. But Voz Speech Therapy is here to help. Through our therapeutic approach, we’ll work with both you and your child to address their disorder. Because children may be either uncooperative, or too young to understand how to practice their new speech and language skills, we’ll show you how to support them along the way as well.

In some limited cases, perhaps. But research shows that early intervention speech therapy delivers much better results. If you take the wait and see approach, and it doesn’t work out, your child might be stuck with a frustrating speech or language disorder for the rest of their life that could have been treated with early intervention.
