Disorders We Treat

Helping You Overcome Speech & Language Problems

Our entire team at Beverly Hills Speech & Language Center is dedicated to helping you or your loved one develop effective methods for better communication. We have more than 50 years of combined experience helping adults and children. You will be in a supportive and nurturing environment with one of our licensed and experienced therapists.

We can help with a number of disorders, including:

  • Articulation disorder- Difficulty forming and combining sounds. Typical speech production problems include substituting one sound for another, omitting sounds, or distorting sounds.
  • Apraxia of Speech – Speech disorder affecting a child’s ability to articulate sounds, syllables and words clearly and consistently. Can result in the absence of speech or unintelligible spoken language.
  • Dysarthria - Slurred or imprecise speech resulting from muscle weakness associated with an underlying neurological injury.
  • Stuttering/Fluency Disorder- An interruption in the flow or rhythm of speech characterized by hesitations, repetitions, or prolongations of sounds, syllables, words or phrases. Most often begins in children between the ages of 2 and 6. The chances of recovery are best when treated at an early age.
  • Voice Disorder - Hoarse, harsh, breathy or nasal speech; inappropriate pitch (too high, too low, never changing, or interrupted by breaks), or inappropriate loudness (too loud or too soft).
  • Auditory Processing Disorder – Difficulty understanding sounds, words, sentences or spoken language.
  • Language disorders - A problem in the understanding and/or formation of spoken or written language.
  • Autism - A developmental disorder affecting a child’s ability to communicate and engage with others, starting before the age of three.
  • Asperger’s syndrome - A milder form of autism characterized by difficulties with social communication.
  • Tongue thrusting - An incorrect swallowing pattern where the tongue moves forward during swallowing or speaking, resulting in problems with teeth alignment and/or articulation.
  • Selective Mutism - Childhood communication disorder whereby a child who is capable of speaking is unable to speak in certain situations. For example, a child may be completely silent at school but speak quite freely at home.
  • Phonological awareness problems -The inability to learn the underlying skills needed in order to learn to read and spell.
  • Accent reduction - Individuals who have foreign or regional accents who want to learn another speaking style, for professional or personal reasons.
  • Pragmatic/social language disorders - Difficulty making eye contact, engaging in social exchanges and reading social cues. May be associated with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
