Preschool Language Therapy:

Preschoolers may struggle with a variety of aspects of language. These can include vocabulary, grammar (syntatx), phonics, early literacy skills, social skills (pragmatics) and retelling a story (narratives). We use fun and play-based activities to target the area(s) of language your preschooler is having difficulty with. By implementing mult-sensory learning, we make learning engaging and fun! . Interventions such as the Story Grammar Marker, The Storybook Journey, and Lively Letters help further build the foundation for literacy.

Toddler Language Therapy:

We have extensive training and experience in providing speech therapy to young children who are not yet talking. Through meaningful and engaging opportunities, children learn words associated with the world around them. Our therapists are trained in programs specifically for working with “late talkers” such as “Target Word” and “It Takes Two to Talk.”  Individualized therapy and specific suggestions for carryover throughout the week are provided following each session. Our compassionate and engaging therapists make therapy fun and meaningful for your little one!

 Reading/Written Language Disorders:

The Speech Dynamic written language disorders

During the elementary school years, children develop many more complex skills. They tell stories that follow a sequence of events, demonstrate cause and effect, and indicate the goals of the characters. Children should have a much more developed theory of mind, understanding the beliefs and thoughts of themselves as well as the beliefs and thoughts of others. At this age, parts of the story are not always “spelled out” and children are expected to make inferences based on what they already know about the characters or situation. We use books and stories to help teach these skills to students. Interventions such as the Expanding Expression Tool, SPACE framework, and Visualizing and Verbalizing ™ are utilized to help children develop these skills. The Lindamood-Bell Seeing Stars®: Symbol Imagery for Phonemic Awareness, Sight Words, and Spelling Program (SI) is used to successfully develop symbol imagery for reading and spelling and The Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) program develops concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined or imaged gestalt from language—as a basis for comprehension and higher order thinking. The development of concept imagery improves reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.

 

We also are uniquely qualified to assess a child’s social-cognitive level and executive functioning difficulties. Impairments in these areas are often missed by standard language assessments. Social skills assessments consists of an observation in the child’s natural, environment, parent interview, and direct a assessment.

Her gentle and compassionate approach was just the connection my son needed

My son Finnian was diagnosed with autism at age 3 and was non verbal. I remember being so scared and stressed about Finn’s future until I met his team of teachers and therapists. Miss Brooke was my son Finn’s speech therapist in his EC Pre-K classroom. She was amazing with Finn and supportive to me. Her gentle and compassionate approach was just the connection my son needed to feel safe and grow. One of my favorite qualities of Miss Brooke is her genuine enthusiasm when working with my son. I will always be grateful for her twinkling eyes and contagious smile when discussing my son’s progress and growth. Thank you Miss Brooke!
