Speech and language therapy sessions are 30-minute individual appointments held within our clinic conducted by a pediatric speech-language pathologist. Each session is planned to systematically target set speech and language skills using games, toys, books and materials.
Our treatment uses measurable objectives and systematic data collection to capture important details about the session related to accuracy, elicitations, productions and overall participation in session content. Session-by-session data collection provides detailed information about individual session performance and productivity as well as trends in performance over time.
Our therapy is playful, sometimes silly, engaging, but most importantly productive, ensuring that all therapeutic time is purposeful in meeting speech and language objectives set out in a formal treatment plan.
Speech and language therapy may address one or more communication needs including social skills for Autism (ASD), receptive language, expressive language, voice, stuttering, early language learning, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, and speech sound errors. For example, therapy may target errors with the R sound or a frontal lisp, sound sequencing, tongue thrust, vocal hygiene and strategies for vocal nodules, or developing vocabulary for a child who has not yet developed a large fund of words.
