Pediatric Speech Pathology

We are pleased to offer services for speech, language, and feeding delays through the Hearing and Speech Department at WFBMC. Our pediatric Speech-language pathologists are available for testing and treating children ranging in age from birth to 16 years old. Each member of the team has specialty areas. All hold national certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and licensure from the state of North Carolina. Referrals are accepted from parents, physician offices, behavioral health programs, and local school programs.  A physician order is required for all evaluations and treatment.

Evaluation

Appointments for testing are scheduled throughout the week in a variety of time slots. Work-ins can be considered in urgent situations. The following impairments can be addressed by therapists on our team:

  • Speech difficulties or reduced clarity
  • General language delays (trouble understanding or using language)
  • Feeding or swallowing difficulties
  • Changes in ability due to seizures or traumatic brain injury
  • Stuttering
  • Concerns about social use of language or pragmatic delays

Evaluation is available for Spanish-speaking families with help from a hospital interpreter. Our team also evaluates central auditory processing disorders (CAPD), augmentative communication needs, and cochlear implant candidates. These appointments are part of a team format with other professionals participating as well.

Therapy Services

When children need weekly therapy services, our team is able to schedule families in a variety of time slots every day of the week. We have some appointments available later in the afternoon (Monday-Thursday) for school-aged children. We do have attendance and discharge policies to help with quick scheduling and to make services available to as many families as possible.
