For more than 40 years, CHAT (formerly known as the Center for Speech and Language or CSLD) has changed lives through engaging therapy that works. We advocate for our clients and raise awareness about communication challenges and their impact on our families and communities. Our work in clinics, schools, and programs has helped countless children. We are constantly innovating to bring services to those who need them most, most recently by transitioning 100% of our services to teletherapy.
