Speech Language Therapy
Opening the door to communication.
Why children need speech therapy:
- Sound production
- Delayed language development
- Voice disorders such as volume & pitch
- Apraxia - motor speech disorders
- Augmentative communication
- Auditory processing disorders
Speech therapy assessment and intervention focuses on the following:
- Discovering your child's strengths and weaknesses in the area of communication.
- Understanding your family's concerns.
- Standardized and informal evaluation tools (tests) determine what types of communication problems exist.
- Developing a treatment plan to improve your child's ability to communicate.
- Therapy activities may include the use of pictures, books, toys, and computer programs while modeling and eliciting improved communication skills.
- Home programs to practice newly learned skills.
