Many clinicians on our diverse staff have areas of special interest and expertise, such as Augmentative/Alternative Communication, pediatric feeding and swallowing, orofacial myofunctional therapy, and fluency disorders.

Peninsula Associates has set itself apart with its reputation of providing the highest quality of care throughout the community. We serve in varied settings: private practice, public, private, and residential schools, specialty clinics, hospitals, and universities, skilled nursing facilities, acute care hospitals, home health agencies, and virtually, via telepractice.

Our Services

Our goal is to provide comprehensive and individualized care to our patients with communication difficulties. Our services include:

Child Services

In addition to the services mentioned, we also offer specialized support in infant and pediatric feeding, addressing any difficulties to promote healthy eating habits. Our myofunctional treatment focuses on improving oral muscle function, benefiting speech and swallowing skills. With a strong emphasis on parental involvement, we, at Peninsula Associates ensure open communication and collaboration, aiming to help children thrive and enhance their interactions at home, school, and with friends. We also address fluency disorders, offering comprehensive assessment and therapy to enhance fluent speech.

Our specialized services include myofunctional treatment, addressing speech and swallowing difficulties related to facial and mouth muscle disorders in adults. We offer augmentative/alternative communication services, enabling effective expression for individuals with communication impairments. Gender-affirming voice treatment is provided, supporting transgender individuals in developing a voice that aligns with their gender identity. We also assist with fluency disorders, strokes, brain injuries, and attention deficit disorder, and offer on-site services at local adult care facilities.

Teletherapy Services

Teletherapy has been changing the way we get access to professional support for a long time. In the last year, teletherapy options have become even more critical. This service delivery option has changed the landscape of how we interact with the world around us. Teletherapy services have become a vital part of any diversified private practice.
