Monkey Mouths was founded to provide families with a unique, supportive environment for their child’s speech therapy needs, and our team of expert therapists is trained to diagnose and treat each individual child.
Our Speech-language pathologists treat expressive and receptive communication challenges in children that cause difficulty in verbal communication. Speech-language pathologists can also evaluate and treat oral motor concerns (chewing and swallowing), voice, fluency, articulation, and social language skills.
For speech therapy, Monkey Mouths currently treats patients in the following areas:
Articulation Disorders: Difficulty producing specific sounds, trouble being understood, fast talker
Bilingual Therapy: Spanish (Coppell, Ft. Worth and Hurst locations, Frisco coming soon) Portuguese (Coppell location)
Childhood Apraxia of Speech: (CAS) is a motor-speech disorder. A child with CAS knows what they want to say. The problem is not how the child thinks but how the brain tells the mouth muscles to move.
Feeding Disorders: Oral and Pharyngeal Dysphagia, Sensory-Motor Feeding Issues, Picky Eaters/Limited Diet, Oral-Myofunctional Therapy, difficulty with breast or bottle feeding, Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)
Hearing Differences: Auditory Verbal Therapy (Ft. Worth and Southlake locations), Cochlear Implants, Hearing Aids, Sign Language
