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.

“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.
“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 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.
“Came in after a bad car accident. Couldn’t put my socks on, my back hurt so bad. After 2 months of seeing Heidi & Scott I’ve regained all my mobility & have finally got back into the gym. Night and day difference from when I started."
— Gregory E.
“Went from bad pain in shoulder to no pain at all. I’m very satisfied with everything."
— David B.
“I came in with severe sciatica pain I’ve been dealing with it for years and my chiropractor was unable to solve. By the end of my first visit I was walking again with little pain. I’ve returned to a normal daily routine. I wish I would have come to FYZICAL years ago!"
— Craig N.
“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.
“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."
— Judy K
“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.
“When I first came in I was so Dizzy I wasn’t able to walk straight and was so bad I was also having trouble sleeping. After the first treatment I was better. The staff has been wonderful and has been very concerned with my wellbeing. I’m a true success story!
— Mona R.
