Speech and Language Services
At First Coast Brain Builders, a speech pathologist will conduct a comprehensive and customized evaluation of you or your child’s auditory, speech, language and reading abilities. This may include informal, play based and/or formal evaluation protocols to obtain a complete picture of you or your child’s communication status. We take into account what your input in order to design our program.
After the evaluation, a written report and treatment plan will be reviewed and provided to you. Treatment is most effective when the whole team is involved— including audiologists, teachers, pediatricians, caregivers, and any other specialists. Communication with the entire team will occur to ensure maximum progress.

- Speech Sound Production
- Apraxia of Speech
- Accent Modification

Listening and Spoken Language
First Coast Brain Builders provides speech and language therapy services to improve auditory and memory skills. Speech therapy can help stimulate parts of the brain responsible for memory and understanding of speech and language, assisting in improving overall communication skills.
Auditory training provides support for adjusting to hearing loss and listening with hearing aids or hearing technology. Even if you don’t have hearing loss, you may still struggle to hear conversation in noise. We hear with our ears but listen with our brains. Auditory training uses active listening exercises to train the brain to interpret sounds in order to improve understanding of language and give you the tools for successful communication.
First Coast Brain Builders prioritizes collaboration between your speech-language pathologist and audiologist to maximize the benefit of your hearing technology.
