Four children smiling

Testimonials

"Speech therapy days are some of my favorite days of the week. My daughter walks with me hand and hand into the building. She smiles and runs to the toys. She says something new every time… She enjoys the trip and I leave crying again but tears of joy, of accomplishment, knowing that my decision to drive 2 hours back and forth and spend the time and money have paid off and she has learned to act better, talk more and be more sure of herself in a different environment.”
“There is nothing better than seeing people pour their heart and soul into everything they do to help your child. Before Prairie Wind Speech Therapy, we were unsure of the future for our son. Within the first week of starting, our hopes and dreams for him came back and we knew there was nowhere else we would go. The progress he has made from when we started 18 months ago has assured us we made the right decision.”
"She has helped my son make great progress on his speech and language goals, working with us every step of the way to make the process seamless and collaborative. She really got to know us as a family and formed a great relationship with our son; this has had a hugely positive impact on his therapy outcomes. She is a top notch SLP and we would recommend her to our family and friends."

Receptive/Expressive Language Difficulties

Language skills are the foundation of school success and effective self-expression. A strong vocabulary, the ability to understand what’s being said and to follow directions, and positive interactions are the basis for academic and social growth. We treat the language skills that affect a wide range of concerns, including autism, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, auditory processing, and language delays/disorders. Make an appointment for your free initial consult today.

Speech Development

Is your child’s speech hard to understand? Do people often say “What?” or ask him to repeat himself? Speech disorders can look like sound errors, “baby talk,” or even silence, and they can be enormously frustrating for your child and your family. Prairie Wind provides free initial consults to help determine if your child would benefit from therapy. Full evaluations are available, as well as therapy for articulation, phonology, and apraxia of speech.

Home School Resource

When you are homeschooling, it can be hard to recognize whether or not you should be concerned about your child’s speech and language skills. Prairie Wind provides free initial consults to assist you in discovering what your child’s needs and required services may be. In addition, we provide speech-language evaluations and therapy, and we can connect you with other providers and services within the community.

Late Talkers

Are you concerned because your toddler isn’t talking? Can you count the number of words your 2-year-old understands? If the answer is yes, your child may be a late talker. When children under the age of three have language delays, communication at home often looks a lot like pointing and grunting. Our therapists have many years of experience understanding and working with toddlers and families. We believe parents and caregivers are an integral part of the therapy process, and we welcome the chance to work with you.
