UPDATED: February 25, 2019

The Pediatric Language and Communication Disorders (PLCD) clinic is a specialty track that provides speech and language support to children with varying needs:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC)
Developmental Delay
Receptive and Expressive Language Disorder
Pragmatic Language Disorder

At the GWU, we work closely with families to create an individualized service plan to help children uncover and strengthen skills, allowing them to function to the best of their abilities. We utilize behavioral interventions, as well as sensory integration techniques, as needed, while providing speech-language therapy to our clients. We provide complete speech-language evaluations, including AAC assessments, for both verbal and non-verbal children, as young as 6 months and can provide services for cognitively impaired adults.

The Speech and Hearing Center provides feeding services for clients who are picky eaters, have food aversion or sensitivity, and oral motor impairment. Sensory, oral aversion, and oral motor disordered clients will engage in special treatment focusing on improving food quality and quantity intake.
