Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2011 -- According to statistics, about 20 percent of children have a speech or language disorder. Most experts agree that children with a speech or language difficulty should be assessed by a speech therapist, so that the problem can be resolved as quickly as possible.
While some schools offer speech therapy for their students, many parents want their child to get more frequent speech therapy help than many schools are able to offer. While a student may work with a school-based speech therapist maybe once or twice a week for a short time, working directly with a private speech therapist may help the child’s speech and language improve even quicker.
For parents who are looking for help for their children in regards to speech therapy, Atlanta based By Word of Mouth is here to help. The speech therapy service recently opened for business and is serving families in need of speech therapy from the greater metro Atlanta area.
The speech pathology company offers comprehensive and individualized Speech-Language Therapy to families and children within their natural environments, including right in the comfort of their own home, daycare, and schools.
“At By Word of Mouth, we believe in a team-based approach by incorporating parents, occupational and physical therapists, teachers, pediatricians, psychologists and other professionals into your child’s therapy to ensure comprehensive and effective services,” it explained on the website.
