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.

“Since starting therapy I am sleeping better, less headaches and an overwhelming feeling of energy again. I was going through a depression due to headaches and neck pain. When I first started my therapy at Fyzical, with Amy’s help I finally understand what was the cause of the headaches. The entire staff were so helpful and patient with me. I would recommend Fyzical to my friends needing physical therapy."

“After knee replacement I was in quite a bit of pain. PT was tough to start with but after a week or started to see a change. Along with at home exercising I now feel like I am able to exercise on my own. Surgery was 6 week ago."
— Mark K
“Went from bad pain in shoulder to no pain at all. I’m very satisfied with everything."
— David B.
“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.
“Initially I came in basically unable to walk. I could not put any weight on my left leg at all. After approximately 7-8 visits I was back to playing basketball. The staff was nice and friendly. They were absolutely amazing."
— Christian S
“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!"
— Alemenesh M.
“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 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!"

“Riley was diagnosed with torticollis at 1 month old. He is a twin and the tight quarters only favored looking one direction so much he developed a knot in his neck muscle that was very visible as well as a flat spot on the side of his head. With PT it has made a huge difference in his behavior and interaction! By starting right away when we were diagnosed and working a lot with him at home it only took about 5 months and his back to normal with his head control and development. Krysta gave us stretches and exercises that were easy to do throughout the day with a busy house of 3 kids."
— Riley B.
“Everyone from the front desk and all the techs are the “Best”. I’ve done therapy at other centers and never achieved what these folks helped me to achieve! Highly recommend “Fyzical” therapy!"
