What We Do

In parent Jennifer D.'s words, "The Child Achievement Center has made my child grow leaps and bounds in his speech and in his social skills."

From infants through teenagers, our speech therapists and special education teachers work together with families and schools to enable children to reach their full communication and educational potential.

Our professional therapy staff of  sixteen speech-language pathologists and special educators provides testing, individual programs, speech therapy and reading therapy techniques geared to your child's specific needs.

Shari A. Gross, M.A., CCC-SLP and all our speech therapists are highly experienced at providing effective therapy for children with complex needs, including autism spectrum disorders, hearing impairment, selective mutism, cerebral palsy, and genetic disorders, as well as children with articulation and language disorders.
