at Marshfield Speech & Language Therapy


Evaluations allow us the opportunity to develop a comprehensive picture of your child's strengths, challenges, and preferences. We use a combination of standardized assessment measures, observation, interaction with your child, and a review of developmental and academic history to determine if therapy is recommended. Following the evaluation, we will review the results and our recommendations. When therapy is recommended, we collaborate to develop a treatment plan that aligns with each family's priorities and goals. 

Contact us to discuss your concerns and determine if an evaluation is recommended.


Our team is dedicated to combining evidence-based approaches with fun and interactive activities. We love to incorporate games, crafts, and your child's preferences to keep them engaged and help them reach their goals.

We provide weekly therapy sessions in our clinic, at your home, daycare, school, or after-school program. We are dedicated to collaborating with parents and teachers to promote your child’s success-- both in and out of the classroom.


We also offer services for adults. Click here to learn more.

Children who struggle to produce speech sounds correctly may become frustrated when they are not understood, or become self-conscious about talking. Speech therapy can help improve:

  • Overall speech clarity

  • Production of age-appropriate sounds and sound combination

  • The ability to distinguish between correct and incorrect sounds

  • Motor planning and speech coordination​

  • Confidence and motivation to communicate


Direct speech and language support early in development leads to positive outcomes for children experiencing delays or at risk for conditions that affect language development. We work with children as young as 18 months to build skills such as:

  • Engaging in back-and-forth communication exchanges​

  • Understanding and using speech and gestures to get their needs met

  • Learning vocabulary for preferred people and things

  • Following 1-2 step directions

  • Asking and answering questions

  • Parent coaching to increase opportunities for practice within daily routines


A child may be experiencing challenges at home, in school, or in social interactions as a result of a language disorder. We target receptive and expressive language skills for children of all ages to help them develop skills such as:

  • Increasing vocabulary and sentence length

  • Following verbal and written directions

  • Asking and answering questions

  • Using age-appropriate grammar 

  • Processing verbal language and increasing recall of information 

  • Narrative skills for story retell



A child may demonstrate social communication difficulties that impact their ability to form relationships, engage in play or conversation, regulate emotions, interpret non-verbal information, or understand abstract language (e.g., humor, figurative speech). Borrowing concepts from social thinking 

we work on:

  • Expand play skills 

  • Increase engagement with peers

  • Develop conversation skills

  • Understand other peoples' perspectives

  • Improving overall understanding of social expectations

  • Understanding nonliteral language and non-verbal communication


We combine evidence-based strategies with a whole-child approach to address feeding and swallowing challenges. Feeding therapy is focused on increasing oral feeding and sensory tolerance levels in a collaborative and safe environment.


Feeding therapy can improve a child’s ability to participate in mealtimes without stress and improve the whole family’s quality of life. We support children experiencing:

  • Picky eating and meal-time struggles

  • Sensory processing and aversions

  • Oral-motor coordination for feeding and swallowing

  • Difficulty transitioning to solid foods


Working alongside peers is a great way to learn. Peers offer opportunities to practice new skills in real-life scenarios and motivation to keep trying. We offer social communication groups and preschool playgroups focused on:

  • Initiating interactions

  • Turn-taking and back-and-forth play

  • Building friendships

  • Practicing conversational skills

  • Developing problem-solving skills
