other related Internet sites and you may not be able to return to this
site. We have no control over navigation once you leave our site, so

A complete Site Map is provided

Each section is targeted to helping you become better informed
and educated about that section’s content. The section will include
links to other sites on the Internet that may pertain to general and/or
specific Speech and Language issues, related issues, news, and related
providers, foundations, or governmental help. For example, in the section “Discovering” you
will find links to a number of medical directories and dictionaries.
This site is intended to be a living source of information
and will be constantly updated. We will be announcing speech and language
related news and events, as well as general information that could be
important to parents, children and the many other professionals and support
agencies that relate to our specialty.
As elsewhere on the Internet, all linked pages are printed in blue and are underlined. Clicking on these pages so “marked” will launch you into that site or section.
Additionally, there are two programs that can be of great assistance to you in viewing and printing information from this site. You may download these programs directly from our location.
The first is Acrobat Reader™. This program allows you print out pages within this sight that contain articles you may wish to save in hard copy. When the documents are printed, you will receive “text” documents and not all the graphics that are shown on the web page. This is a much cleaner and faster way to print documents. This feature is available only on certain documents created within our website. These pages are marked with the Acrobat Reader logo.
Please click here to download Acrobat Reader now.
The second program is called “Flash.” This is a program from Macromedia™, which will enable the on-line animation feature of our site. These features include short films showing actual therapy sessions for many of the more common speech/language issues. It will also enable you to take a virtual tour of the clinic itself.
You should know that the speed with which you view these film clips is dependant on your computer and speed of your modem or DSL. At this writing we are in production of a supplement to our printed brochure, which will be presented on CD. These films might be better viewed via the CD. When available it can be ordered directly from this site.
If you wish to download "Flash" please click here now.
