Our Mission

In SLP Miami Therapy, we believe that a child responds better and faster when he is seen and treated in an integral fashion. For that reason we coordinate our efforts and knowledge (Speech/language pathologists and Occupational therapists) to boost the child's development in all his developmental areas: communication, social-emotional, motor, cognitive, adaptive and behavior. The first few minutes of the therapy session is spent in the Occupational Therapy mini gym. At the gym the children improve their muscular tone, posture, sensory integration, global motor planning and then are ready for an individualized speech and language successful session, or a specialized occupational therapy session. We believe that the Brain circuits, which create the foundation for learning, behavior and health, are most flexible or "plastic" during the first three years of life. Over time, they become increasingly difficult to change. The Early Intervention is based on this principle.
