LKN Speech Language Pathology


With a keen focus on personal attention and understanding, LKN Speech-Language Pathology provides the highest quality of speech, language, voice, cognitive and swallowing services to help people lead healthier, more successful lives.

Communication That Builds Confidence

Speech-language pathology is not about revelations or corrections. It’s about communication, relationships and trust. It focuses on building childhood language and cognitive skills so learning becomes less frustrating. It reinforces new muscle movements, speech patterns and tenacity until one day we realize we’ve not only broken through, but broken free of a disorder.

We work with people of all ages from babies to adolescents and working adults to retirees. Our specialty includes:

  • Articulation and voice disorders
  • Auditory processing and hearing impairment
  • Delays and disorders in language development and processing
  • Fluency including stuttering and stammering
  • Language learning difficulties such as dyslexia
  • Neurological impairments including aphasia
  • Physical speech barriers such as cleft palates
  • Speech impairments due to apraxia, dysarthria and phonological disorders
  • Swallowing disorders in adults

What is Speech Therapy?

Speech-language pathologists, also called speech therapists, help identify, evaluate and treat disorders related to speech and language. In many cases, these disorders occur during childhood and unlike popular belief, rarely improve without treatment. This includes stuttering and stammering, improper articulation, language delays and voice disorders related to modulation and tone (such as a pitch that is too high or too low).

Often, people assume children and even adults with these problems have learning disabilities—a label that can severely alter an individual’s education, career, confidence and self-worth. By screening and working with children early, speech, language and even hearing disorders can be corrected. This enables each child to participate more actively in class and develop vital communication skills needed for life. But speech therapy can be beneficial at any age, so don’t let the years keep you from reclaiming the power of communication.
