2011 Run, Walk, and Roll…a Success!

Raleigh Therapy Services was pleased to participate for the 3rd year in a row at the Run, Walk, and Roll which benefits Telability and the children and families who participate in this program.  It was a spectacular day and fun was had by all.  RTS’ own physical therapist, Whitney Woodhull-Smith, ran in the 5K.  We enjoyed talking with families and other professionals within the community.  The 3rd Annual Run, Walk, and Roll was a huge success, and we look forward to being a part of the fun next year!

May is Better Speech and Hearing Month!

The month of May is dedicated to increasing awareness about communication disorders and the treatment that is available for children and adults who have difficulty hearing, speaking, and/or understanding.  At Raleigh Therapy Services, we have a large team of highly qualified speech-language pathologists who are well-equipped to screen, evaluate, and/or provide necessary treatment to improve the quality of life for those with communication disorders.  Some reasons for a referral to a speech-language pathologist may include:

*Difficulty understanding vocabulary and/or following directions.

*Difficulty being understood by others.

*Decreased expressive vocabulary.


*Difficulty producing certain sounds.

*Problems with reading.

*Swallowing/feeding problems.

*Social skills problems.

If you have questions about your child’s speech and language skills or would like a FREE screening, please call our office. 

*Please note that if a speech and language screening is conducted and results warrant further assessment, therapy cannot be started until a full evaluation has been completed.
