KANSAS CITY SPEECH PROFESSIONALS
Welcome to Our Practice
We are a therapist owned and operated company providing Speech-Language therapy and Dyslexia evaluation to the greater Kansas City area.
KCSP provides speech, language, cognitive, and dyslexia evaluation and treatment for all ages.
COMPREHENSIVE DYSLEXIA DIAGNOSTICS
The ability to read and comprehend information is vital to a student's academic success. KCSP can provide comprehensive Dyslexia testing without the long wait of other testing facilities.
ARTICULATION EVALUATION AND THERAPY
Children should be producing all sounds in the English language by age 8. When those sounds are difficult for your child to produce, KCSP can provide the therapy needed to address this concern.
MULTISENSORY READING INTERVENTION
We offer an Orton-Gillingham based program that provides structured, systematic, multisensory reading intervention for beginning readers.
TONGUE THRUST THERAPY
Braces are expensive. When the braces are ready to come off, you want to ensure that a tongue thrust will not push those teeth back out. KCSP offers a therapy program to address this concern.
Voice disorders can affect people of all ages for a variety of reasons. KCSP can provide the therapy needed to improve voice disorders and promote healthy vocal hygiene.
A stroke can affect a person's language and cognitive abilities as well as their ability to produce sounds. KCSP can provide therapy to improve as well as maintain speech abilities following a stroke.
