Old Greenwich, Connecticut - August 8, 2019 /MarketersMedia/

Speech and language developmental challenges are becoming increasingly common according to a recent report from the United States Department of Health and Human Services. An estimated 34 percent of children ages three through 10 live with these issues while the number drops to 25 percent among those ages 11 to 17. In many cases, these types of disorders are co-occurring. In response to this rising prevalence, Lauren Zalis of The Waverly Group has announced the practice is offering pediatric therapy services for children struggling with these issues.

"At the Waverly Group, we're dedicated to helping children of all ages with a wide range of issues they may be facing," said Zalis. "Our children's therapy teams have extensive experience in their respective fields and are passionate about their work with children. We work closely with families to truly understand a child's strengths and weaknesses so we can develop therapy plans customized to his or her specific needs."

The Waverly Group works with children experiencing expressive and receptive language delays, social pragmatic challenges, and fluency, phonological, and auditory processing disorders. Waverly also specializes in working with children with ADHD and autism as well as other developmental disorders. Waverly therapists work closely with school faculty, parents and medical specialists.

Waverly is known for its collaborative model across disciplines. For example, a child with autism may be receiving a variety of services including occupational therapy, ABA and speech therapy for kids. At Waverly, the team works closely to ensure a cohesive and meaningful experience across therapies. Alisa Rohdie, behavior analyst and co-director said "Collaboration is what defines the Waverly experience. It's a dream for therapists to work so closely together, and having therapies all under one roof helps parents in many different ways."

Waverly's speech therapy team is led by Debra Guise, MS, CCC-SLP. Guise has been working with children as a pediatric speech pathologist for more than 25 years and specializes in aiding those from birth to eight years old. Other members of the team hold a number of certifications and have extensive experience in various specialties, including Social Thinking curriculum, PROMPT, bi-lingual therapy and feeding therapies.

Dr. Lauren Riordan,clinical psychologist and co-director, concluded "We truly enjoy working with children to help them overcome their hurdles and develop entirely new levels of confidence as they progress. We offer a nurturing, supportive environment in which they can expand their communicative and cognitive skills. Our team also offers diet and nutrition education, behavioral therapy and a long list of other services."
