Metropolitan Speech & Language Center

About Us

The Metropolitan Speech & Language Center provides services for a variety of communication and feeding disorders, primarily for children and also for adults.

The Metropolitan Speech & Language Center is fortunate to share offices with Positive Steps, Pediatric Occupational Therapy Center.  Children who receive both speech therapy and occupational therapy are able to schedule both therapy sessions during one visit.  The Director of Positive Steps, Dana Blumberg, OTR/L, and her staff work closely as a “team” with the speech-language pathologists of MSLC to ensure carryover of all skills.

The speech-language pathologists of Metropolitan Speech all have extensive experience and possess specialized training in a variety of areas of expertise that include:

  • Apraxia and Low Oral Tone
  • Feeding Disorders
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • Social Skills
  • Auditory Processing Disorders
  • Early Intervention
  • Voice Disorders
  • Fluency Disorders (Stuttering)
  • Articulation
  • Language and Phonics
  • Foreign Accent Reduction
  • Oral Myofunctional Disorders

Evaluation and therapy sessions at Metropolitan Speech always involve the parent, other family member or caregiver who accompanies the child.  The Speech Language Pathologist welcomes the parent to join the end of a session to review activities, progress and home exercises.

Bounce ‘N’ Babble

The Metropolitan Speech & Language Center is also proud of their innovative Bounce ‘n Babble Speech Therapy/Occupational Therapy Groups for children 1½ to 2½ years old.  In a “Mommy & Me” setting, the goals of Bounce ‘n Babble are to foster language development while incorporating movement and our senses. Speech and Occupational Therapy screening/evaluations are part of the requirements for acceptance into a Bounce ‘n Babble therapy group.
