Speech Language Pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. In addition to all of the effective interventions Speech Therapists use, it is becoming more common in today’s world, to utilize apps to facilitate the growth of your child’s speech and language skills. There are apps for anything and everything from ordering groceries, reading the news, glancing at new photos, the possibilities are endless.
Applications are not only educational, but fun and motivating to children of all ages and abilities. They can be used to track progress and celebrate success. It’s important to know apps do not take the place of a Speech Therapy session, and may not fit in to all treatment plans, but applications may be used in certain degrees to facilitate a variety of speech and language skills which include:
Articulation (Formulating Speech Sounds)
Expressive Language (Communicating Ideas/Topics)
Receptive Language (Understanding Ideas/Topics)
Pragmatics (Social Skills)
Augmentative Communication (Communicating via Tablet )
Contact our Speech-Language Pathologists at FYZICAL to set up a free consultation to discover the benefits of Speech Therapy and apps you can use in the home in addition to your child’s therapy sessions.

“Went from bad pain in shoulder to no pain at all. I’m very satisfied with everything."
— David B.
“When I first started at Fyzical I was recovering from fractured tibia. I was using a walker after having been in a wheelchair for about 3 months. I was able to graduate to a cane and now an able to go without the cane around the house or short distances. I only use the cane when walking longer distances. The staff at Fyzical are all very caring and professional. They are friendly and encouraging."
— Diane B.
“I arrived at Fyzical with a whole host of diagnoses for my hip pain (from prior PT). Shannon at Fyzical diagnosed quickly and had me feeling better than I had in months! Very Thankful!!"
— Lonnie G
“I had quite a bit of pain in the beginning had trouble with pretty much everything I did. Sleeping, sitting, and exercising. I found Fyzical, these people made me feel almost like new again. Thank you so much to Andra, she saved me. Amazing Place!"
— Deborah W
“I am a 15 year old football, basketball, and track player at the Millard West who hurt my knee and over the last couple months therapy here has gone super will and the people here are super nice!"
— Joe B.
“I highly recommend Krysta @ FYZICAL. After my surgery I thought I would go to PT a couple times & figure out what I could do at home to get back to normal. I was wrong. Krysta helped me to get my range of motion back and helped my big scar disappear. It was easy to schedule appointments. "
— Amy J.
“I had rotator cuff surgery in the spring. Following that surgery my shoulder was very weak and I was unable to move it without pain. I began me therapy with Fyzical and was amazed at how quickly my quality of movement improved with their help. I am now able to move with almost complete range of movement and have most of my strength back. I honestly believe I could not have attained this in less than 6 months with the staff at Fyzical."
— Nancy B.
“When I came to Fyzical I had a lot of pain on my back. They work on my back and got me on the right track to get me healthy again. I recommend this place to anyone who has an issue that needs physical therapy. Thank again!"

“I had a great care and a great outcome at Fyzical. The staff was kind and knowledgeable. They worked with my very busy schedule and I discharged from their care feeling great!"
— Tracy L.
“When I first went to therapy my foot hurt so bad I could barely walk on it. This limited the things I could so and made my job at work difficult to do. After six weeks of therapy I am able to walk with little to no pain. Thank to Everyone at Fyzical."
— James M.
