Passion, Knowledge & Commitment

Speech Time is a pediatric therapy and family wellness center with a team of bilingual and highly skilled professionals in Psychology, Physical, Occupational, and Speech-Language Therapies. Our team believes in a family-centered approach to help children reach their maximum potential.


Our highly trained, licensed therapists have advanced degrees in their areas of specialty. They are dedicated to ongoing continuing education and to provide high quality and convenient services in Miami Dade County.

Speech Time as an agency is committed to cultural diversity, sensitivity, and competence.

We believe that the first step to effective intervention is an individual, in-depth assessment of speech-language, cognitive-linguistic, emotional, sensory-motor skills.

Assessment procedures are chosen based on an individual’s age and the nature of their disorder. All assessments include clinical observations as well as standardized and non-standardized evaluation tools.

The initial assessment takes between one-one and half hours and can be divided into two sessions depending on the patient and severity of the disorder. Upon completion of testing, and parent interview a diagnosis is formulated and a comprehensive report is written.

This included the plan of treatment with goals and appropriate recommendations.

Our most important goal is ensuring patient care that is above and beyond of our expectation as healthcare professionals. For us, each patient is unique and deserves unparalleled experience.

Below is a list of the services we provide.
