Dynamic Therapy Associates, Inc. is a family-focused speech language pathology practice. We provide articulation, language, oral-motor/feeding, and AAC services to our patients.

It's essential to note, however, that while emphasizing the communication of wants and needs is vital, this should not overshadow the necessity of a more comprehensive communicative approach. This balanced focus ensures students are equipped not just to express basic needs but to also develop a rich tapestry of communication skills essential for an inclusive and fulfilling life.
