Our team of speech language Pathologists offer evaluation and treatment of language disorders, reading disorders, auditory processing disorders, and oral motor dysfunction. Treatment involves parents either through participation in the session or through observation windows. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in therapy to reach optimal success for their child.
An individual treatment plan is developed by the therapist and parents to identify communciation goals that are realistic for their child at home and at school. Consultation with other therapists involved with the child is encouraged, such as occuational therpists, physical therapists, teachers, and caregivers.
Pediatric sessions are geared toward establishing relationships through play for appropriate interactions and social skills. Therapists are trained to follow the child’s lead in activities, so the child is encouraged to participate within their comfort level.
