Here at Small talk Pediatric Services we love what we do. We love working with children and families and helping each child reach their full potential. 


We are dedicated to treat each client and family with the most up-to-date research-based treatment available. Each therapist at Small Talk has a passion for speech therapy and understands the value of communication in each persons life.

As pediatric therapists we share your concern and uncertainty that you may feel as a result of your child’s delay. We believe that the best time to help your child is as early as possible. Upon completion of a comprehensive assessment, you and your child’s therapist will begin your journey in ‘discovering together’ your child’s utmost potential.

We look forward to assisting you in helping your child.
