Speech & Language Therapy
Our speech and language pathologists provide individualized approaches dependant upon the child's level of need. The speech-language pathologist focuses on promoting speech and language development with the goal of helping the child succeed in the classroom.
Therapy may address articulation, dysfluency, feeding concerns and oral motor concerns. It may also be designed to improve expressive language skills such as increasing vocabulary, combining words together to form phrases, sentences and questions, and developing the social use of language. Therapy may also focus on developing a child's receptive language skills (understanding of language), such as following various types of directions and responding appropriately to questions. Improving listening and attending skills may also be targeted.
