Language Disorders

Therapy for Young Children

Therapy programs are available for young children having difficulty developing speech and language as well as those who have communication difficulties secondary to Autism Spectrum Disorders or intellectual disabilities. Therapy plans focus on the specific needs of each child and individualized goals are embedded into functional age-appropriate play. Activities emphasize the development of communication skills in an environment that also enhances pre-academic, motor, cognitive, personal-social, sensory, and emerging literacy skills. Parents/caregivers are included in the therapeutic process.

Therapy for School Age Children

After-school services are designed for school-age students experiencing language and reading difficulties. The students are seen individually or in small groups. Each student is able to participate in a variety of listening, speaking, reading, spelling, and writing activities that contribute to the development of language and literacy skills.
