Speech & Language Therapy



Interact Better with Help from CHA

CHA Speech and Language Therapists can help you with a wide range of speech, language, and communication disorders. Their job is to help you build the skills you need to express yourself. This includes special care for children.

Speech & Language Therapy at its Best

At CHA, you or your child will work one-on-one with an experienced therapist. You will get a custom treatment plan and measure progress along the way, using standardized tests as a guide. Our team uses the latest treatment techniques, including LSVT for patients with neurological conditions like Parkinson's Disease.

For Children: Our Speech and Language team works closely with schools in Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, Everett, Malden and beyond. When your child gets services here, we will keep your child’s school in the loop on progress. If needed, we will tell the school about any extra services your child needs to succeed. CHA also offers group therapy to help children work on communication skills.

CHA therapists are licensed in Massachusetts and certified as speech-language pathologists (SLPs) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
