Strategies for Success in Los Gatos, California, provides specialized speech and language therapy services for children and adults. Nicole Cavalea, MS, CCC-SLP, and the team work closely with individuals and families, creating therapy programs that address all components of speech and language development.
The team at Strategies for Success treats many types of speech and language disorders, including receptive-expressive language disorder, adult language disorder, stuttering, and apraxia. They also offer early childhood language development and school speech services.
In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, Strategies for Success specializes in myofunctional therapy for the treatment of orofacial myofunctional disorders (OMD), which are abnormal movement patterns of the face and mouth that affect eating and speech.
Strategies for Success has great results in treating patients with orofacial myofunctional disorders. Myofunctional therapy is used in our practice to treat and correct sleep-disordered breathing/airway concerns, orofacial pain, sensory oral motor feeding and swallowing disorders, and tongue thrust.
In our myofunctional clinic, we provide assessment and individualized protocols to treat tongue, lip, and buccal ties. Myofunctional therapy is a prerequisite for a lingual or labial frenectomy. Based on the patient's needs, pre and post-procedure treatment is established to maximize their oral motor function and range of motion.
The speech and language practice also offers Cogmed® therapy, an evidence-based brain training program that improves memory and attention, and telepractice, which is the use of telecommunication technology to deliver speech-language pathology services from a distance.
