Therapy individually tailored to your child's unique speech and language needs
Following assessment, specific skills will be identified for therapy based on developmental norms for your child's age, individual readiness, and family's goals.
The following are questions we consider when developing individualized treatment approaches:
What is the child's learning style?
What motivates this child?
How physically active does the child need to be during the session?
What is his tolerance for table-top activities?
How should materials be presented?
During speech therapy sessions, your child learns features of the sounds he is targeting and how to use the sound in words, phrases, sentences, and conversation until it becomes natural and spontaneous.
In language therapy, your child participates in a variety of activities to improve his understanding and expression of concepts, vocabulary, grammar, and experiences. This also includes narrative skills (story-telling), the social use of language with others, and abstract language.
