The Premier Pediatric Speech & Language Therapy Practice in Aurora & Lakewood
Focus on children’s speech and language
Here at Therapies of the Rockies, we truly understand how important proper language systems are and how difficult it can be to overcome speech disorders. Our loving staff enjoys working with young patients; we have therapists who specialize in early intervention (birth to three years old), as well as those who can perform file review and consultations for IEP meetings. We have speech therapy specialists at our Aurora and Lakewood locations, so please reach out with any concerns you might have or if you are interested in setting up a consultation for speech therapy for children. We’re here to help however we can.
Now offering social skills groups at both our Aurora and Lakewood locations, and welcome new patients! Our groups are lead by both an occupational therapist and a speech therapist, and are one hour per week. They run for 7-week sessions.

Help with Swallowing Disorders
Therapies of the Rockies is bringing state-of-the-art dysphagia instrumentation to our outpatient clinic via the use of our Fiberoptic Endoscopic of Swallow (FEES) system. Our FEES Endoscopist is trained in the assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders through the implementation of FEES.
We all have difficulty swallowing sometimes. We may have trouble chewing a tough piece of meat. We may gag on food or have to swallow hard to get it down. And we have all had a drink “go down the wrong way,” making us cough and choke. A child with a swallowing disorder will have trouble like this all the time. A swallowing disorder is also called dysphagia (dis-FAY-juh).
