Kinder Speech Therapy LLC was founded to serve families throughout Lower and Central Bucks County. We believe that all children at every age need to be able to communicate. We are passionate about empowering children by helping them to communicate with others, and to understand and socially participate in the world around them. This includes helping them to produce new or challenging speech sounds, increase their vocabulary, combine words into sentences to increase their meaning, follow directions, understand and retell stories, participate in play routines appropriately, and so much more. Families play such an important role in the therapeutic process as their involvement in their child’s therapy is crucial to facilitate carry-over and mastery of skills. Parents are encouraged to ask questions to better understand how they can help their child succeed, and to practice target skills with their child at home. We are excited to start this language journey with you!
