Pediatric Speech & Language Therapy

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, Lakewood, and Colorado Springs locations, so please reach out with any concerns you might have or if you are interested in setting up a consultation. We’re here to help however we can.

Pediatric Speech Disorders

From stuttering to dysarthria, we work with children who have pediatric speech disorders of all kinds. Our speech therapists are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating the following issues in young patients:

Childhood Apraxia of Speech:

A motor speech disorder where children have problems saying sounds, syllables, and words.

Articulation & Phonological Disorders:

Articulation disorders involve problems making sounds, and phonological disorders involve patterns of sound errors.

Dysarthria:

A motor speech disorder that results from impaired movement of the muscles used for speech production.

Stuttering: 

Issues with the production of speech sounds.

Autism spectrum disorder:

A developmental disability where children may have social, communication, and language problems.

Voice Disorders: 

These can range from vocal cord paralysis to vocal cord nodules and more.

Our therapists are able to create a comprehensive treatment plan that will address your child’s unique issues. Call our office to get started!

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).
