Carol Murphy, MA, CCC-SLP
Carol Murphy believes that understanding the language, behavior and skill set of a client can help them develop positive communication and learning patterns. Many problems can have intricacies that may only appear in certain situations even though those issues may have deep, unexposed roots. Exploring these roots and finding the patterns creates fascinating stories that can lead to a better understanding of how to move forward in school and life. Assessment and therapy can help rewrite a person's narrative.
Did You Know?
Did you know that well over 80% of all learning disabilities are language disorders? Did you also know that some emotional problems may have underlying communication or learning deficits? Adults and children who stutter, have language-learning problems or other speech disorders can often appear lazy, angry, resentful, or depressed. They might act out or withdraw. They may be unable to get along with their friends, teachers, co-workers or family members because many of the requirements for learning and communication - memory, processing, attention, vocabulary, and organization are poor. They can be misjudged, misunderstood, misdiagnosed, mislabeled, or missed entirely because their underlying communication and/or learning issues have an overall negative impact on their personality and performance.
