Speech Therapy Anchorage & Elmendorf, Air Force Base, AK

Speech Therapy

It’s no big secret that the world as we know it has changed due to COVID-19. Many
parents are finding themselves in difficult situations regarding their child’s education and
overall development.

If your child is already in speech therapy treatment, it’s still important that he or she
continues to make good progress even if they are unable to go into an office. If you
think your child may have a speech problem and will need to see a specialist before
lockdown ends, don’t worry. Wise Physical Therapy in Anchorage & Elmendorf, Air Force Base, AK, is proud to be able to continue
to offer speech therapy for children through our telehealth services.

Don’t let the complications COVID-19 has caused our world to experience, get in the
way of your child’s speech development. Contact our office today for more information
on how we have adapted our speech therapy programs during this uncertain time.

What Is Telehealth &  How Can It Help My Child?

Telehealth services are a way for Wise Physical Therapy to make sure our patients are still
receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location, such as
their home.
Telehealth services can be accessed via a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Your child
will be able to be “face to face” with their physical therapist so that he or she can
continue their speech therapy treatment from the comfort of your own home during the
pandemic.
Our telehealth services offer live consultation where you and your child can meet and
chat with their physical therapist about progress and treatment plans. Your child will
continue making progress with their speech development without having to come with
you to the clinic.

What Does a Pediatric Speech Therapist Do?

Pediatric speech therapists handle issues dealing with delayed speech, vocabulary
development, facial expressions, and more.

Our therapists here at Wise PT work hard to help our pediatric patients to:
● Develop strong speaking and listening skills
● Refine volume and quality of voice
● Decrease issues patients have with eating, drinking, swallowing, and cognitive
skills

What Should I Expect From My Child’s Speech Therapy?

A speech therapist will not only teach proper exercises and techniques, but will actively
monitor and track the progress of the person receiving the therapy. For children with
speech disorders, we like to make sure that parents play a large role in the process!
Your child will be scheduled for regular virtual appointments with  our
pediatric physical therapist. At the end of each appointment, your child will be given
easy exercises to work on with you, independently from their therapist.
Their treatment plan will consist of exercises to help improve and strengthen
coordination of your mouth, throat, and tongue to facilitate normal speaking, chewing,
and swallowing habits.
