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.
Who We Are
My daughter Katie gets OT and PT therapy from Orange County Speech Services. We love our OT and PT therapists (Taylor and Kim). They pay close attention to Katie's behavior, and they listen carefully to my observations. They make suggestion on activities that stimulate Katie and help her progress. They discard activities that do not work for Katie, and they double up on activities that help Katie develop. They constantly support and encourage us.
My organization has partnered with OC Speech since 2016, and I have worked with the owner, Elizabeth and her staff, closely over the years.
We have had consistency with the therapists who provide excellent support in working with children on their specific speech goals. The therapists are collaborative with my team and always go above and beyond for the families. Since the pandemic, they have shifted to seeing our students virtually, but have continued to make great progress with them which I have been impressed with.
I am so pleased with the partnership that we have had with OC Speech and grateful for the team of therapists that Elizabeth has put together.
Such a great experience with OC speech, super helpful team and staff. Goes above and beyond to make sure you child is seen. They have been so helpful with coordination of services. I have such a crazy schedule and they have always been able to see my daughter for OT, PT, and speech. Ms. Hanna and Ms. Kim care so much for my daughter so happy we came here for services.
Becky & Keith Havas
What an amazing company. My 5 year old son has been going here for awhile for OT, PT and speech. We have been to other company's but nothing compares. They are very personal and if u don't feel comfortable going in, they still offer virtual. My son has made extreme progress. Much more then any other company. We are so happy to be apart of this family.
I have been working directly with OC Speech for 5 years now, contracting with them as an NPA. I am always impressed with Elizabeth and her team of professionals. They work directly with me and my organization and I am always happy and satisfied with their communication, support and efficiency. They have supported us on numerous occasions that have changed over the last year, especially with the pandemic, always working diligently on how to support families and our community. I appreciate their process of supporting students and positive attitude in any situation. I would highly recommend OC Speech for any family, as I have loved working with them for many years.
My son has been going to Occupational Therapy at OC Speech services for 3 years now. Taylor, Brenda, and the rest of the staff have been incredible, even when forced to do OT appointments virtually, they have been attentive and incredibly professional and just darn great at their job! My wife and I are grateful for the kindness, patience, and professionalism shown by the entire staff. Would whole-heartedly recommend them for your child’s therapy needs!
