Our Mission Statement

At Accurate Speech we recognize that being able to communicate is an essential aspect of daily living. When there is an impairment in the understanding and/or use of speech and language, effective communication can be impeded. This can have a negative impact on social, emotional and/or cognitive development. Our mission is to work with your child with knowledge and compassion to improve speech and language where it is needed. We strongly believe in the power of communication!

Most importantly, we believe in our clients. We work to help them achieve their potential!
