Speech therapy is an intervention service that focuses on improving a child's speech and abilities to understand and express language, including nonverbal language. Speech therapists, or speech and language pathologists (SLPs), are the professionals who provide these services.
The main goal that our speech pathologists and therapists have, is to make therapy fun, interactive, and personalized.
Therapy may be individual or include a small group of peers who face similar social and communication challenges. In either situation, the goal is to make the language fun, develop friendships, and enable students to succeed in school.
Speech and language pathologists not only assess and treat for articulation, language and cognitive difficulties, but some also focus on auditory processing, hearing impairment, non-verbal communication, feeding and swallowing difficulties, hearing, TBI and cognitive retraining, and even social skills.
