When a speech-sound disorder is severe, how do you know if it’s childhood apraxia of speech?
Speech & Language Therapy
Speech and language therapy provides treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with articulation skills, social language, auditory and reading comprehension, grammar, fluency, and vocal quality.
Speech and language therapists work with children to equip them with effective skills to successfully communicate with others.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientifically driven goal directed intervention for children to change undesirable behaviors.
We utilize many intervention models such as Discrete Trial Training, Pivotal Response Therapy, Verbal Behavior Therapy and Floortime Therapy.
Occupational therapy services typically include: fine and visual motor skills, body awareness and coordination, self-regulation and sensory processing skills, feeding skills and self-care skills.
These interventions help children to participate fully in school, home and social situations.
Physical therapy treatments consist of integrating functional and therapeutic play to assist children in reaching their goals, improving their balance, strength and physical abilities with an added benefit of boosting their self-esteem.
Each treatment is geared toward the individual child as they all learn and respond differently. It is essential to be an active listener to learn from the child how best to meet their needs.
