Welcome to Straka Speech

If you have concerns about your child’s speech, language abilities, or if your physician or school has referred you to a Speech-Language Pathologist, make an appointment for a diagnostic evaluation with our office.

We provide services for toddlers, children, teens and adults. Our therapeutic services address the following areas:

  • Articulation Delays/Disorders

    We treat articulation and speech disorders including the way a child pronounces sounds in words, sentences and conversation.

  • Augmentative Alternative Communication

    We work with low and high tech technology to assist non-verbal individuals to communicate with family and peers in the community.

  • Autism

    We provide treatment for all aspects of social and language difficulties for children with autism spectrum disorder, from pre-linguistic joint attention skills to difficulty with figurative language.

  • Dysphagia

    We evaluate the oral preparatory & voluntary phases of swallowing as it applies to the oral structure (jaw, lips & tongue), oral motor disorders, current eating status, awareness & control of secretions, jaw control & labial, lingual & velar function.

  • Feeding Disorders

    We can help manage feeding problems that affect a child’s ability to eat or drink in a developmentally appropriate and safe way.

  • Phonological Processing

    We help children whose speech is hard to understand because they have not learned the rules for how sounds fit together to make words.

  • Social Language Disorders

    We treat concerns with a child’s ability to communicate and relate to peers including social rules, conversation skills, problem solving and activities of daily living.

  • Voice Disorders

    We evaluate and treat voice disorders that are functional, neurological and/or organic in nature.
