Led by our team of Speech Language Pathologists (SLP). Students work to improve their ability to understand language, memory, attention and to develop successful verbal and nonverbal communication skills. The role of a Speech Therapist is to connect and have fun with each student, while discovering his or her preferred way of communication.
Communication is an integral part of a child’s daily life. The goals of Speech Therapy include:
Communicating through play (turn taking, eye contact, and appropriate play)
Provide skillful therapy to maximize the child’s ability to effectively and efficiently communicate daily wants and needs.
Explore multi-modal communication (verbal, AAC, PECS, communication board, sign language, gestures, etc.) suited best for the child and their needs
Improve the child’s ability to understand language within the world around them and develop successful communication skills.
Increase social awareness during structured and unstructured activities all while having fun and getting active (answering/asking questions, staying on topic, sharing information)
