Our speech language pathologists are trained in argumentative and alternative communication (ACC) techniques, such as speech generating devices, communication boards, computer activities, and picture exchange communication systems. We strive to identify the most appropriate communication system for your family to achieve optimal relationships and interaction at home, school, and in the community.

SOCIAL SKILLS GROUPS

Social Skills Group Programs at Child and Family Consultants build interaction, communication, sensory regulation abilities, and “social thinking” (perspective taking). Social skills are taught by occupational and speech therapists, within the context of community activities, games and play activities according to the ages of the children or adolescents involved. Social skills programs generally run 8 to 10 weeks, once per week, for a 90 minute session. The social skills programs are small groups, typically including 5 to 7 children or adolescents. The groups are designed for children ranging in age from 5 to 18 years.
