Speech/language pathologists for children in Savannah & Pooler

Speech therapy Savannah Memorial Health University Medical Center

speech Savannah /language pathologist Early Detection of Speech and Language Disorders
By Julie Burch, speech/language pathologist @ The Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial University Medical Center.

Does your preschooler’s language skills lag behind his peers or siblings? Does she throw tantrums or get frustrated over an inability to communicate verbally? Do others have trouble understanding your child’s speech?

If you answered yes to any of these, your child may have a speech/language disorder. A certified speech/language pathologist can evaluate your child and recommend a plan of action. Early intervention is the key to preventing difficulties in learning later on.

If your child exhibits any of these red flags, ask your pediatrician for a referral to a speech/language pathologist for further evaluation:

Doesn’t smile or interact with others (birth-3 months)
Makes few sounds (7-12 months)
Doesn’t understand what others say (7 months-2 years)
Doesn’t put words together to make sentences (1-1/2-2 years)
Has trouble playing and talking with other children (2-3 years)

Lice treatment center opening soon in Savannah

Saturday, September 17th, 2016


We’re excited to let y’all know that professional head lice treatment is coming to Savannah!

(Please note your scalp will start itching as you read this post but that does not mean you have lice. It is a known and inexplicable fact that every time you think or talk about lice, even if you yourself are not infected, your scalp will immediately itch so that it becomes impossible for lice-free adults to have a serious conversation about the subject without scratching their own scalps repeatedly.)

Fresh Heads Lice Treatment Center in Jacksonville & Orlando Fla. plans to open a treatment center in Savannah Jan. 1 2017 – just in time for that season of kids’ sharing hats, blankets & scarves.

(Scalp itching, yet?)

Fresh Heads uses the AirAllé™ Device – an FDA-cleared medical device that kills lice and eggs through dehydration. This is a revolutionary alternative to treating head lice with pesticides, herbal lice remedies, suffocation products or lice combs. The device kills lice and eggs through a specific combination of temperature, airflow, time and technique.

Fresh Heads uses an FDA approved device – which resembles part vacuum cleaner, part hairdryer – that blows out warm air to seek and destroy lice and their eggs.

Learn more about Fresh Heads lice treatment methods here.
