Q. Do you only provide therapy to bilingual or Spanish speakers?
A. We provide therapy to English speakers, Spanish speakers, bilinguals, and speakers of diverse languages.
Q. Should I choose one language when talking to my child who has special needs?
A. No. This is not required as research shows that children with special needs are capable of becoming bilingual.
Q. What are the benefits of receiving bilingual speech therapy?
