Let’s Change the Brain:
Your Avenue to Success
You’ve probably heard that there are windows of opportunity when the brain is ready to learn new skills. These are referred to as developmental milestones. The brain is ‘plastic.’ In other words, it can and does reorganize itself, sometimes within a remarkably short period of time.
We at SPS understand brain plasticity and have the knowledge and technology to help ‘change the brain.’ If we target the root cause and establish new brain pathways by specific, repetitive practice, skills become automatic, learning is much easier, and success is within reach with our speech-language pathology services.
