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!

 Social Skills:

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.

 

Yoga for Speech and Language

 

Yoga  is a body based activity that combines breath, movement, and mindfulness. Speech production happens when we move breath through our voice box and it is shaped by our articulators (parts of our mouth). Breath is the very foundation of speech. Without awareness of breath, it is hard to teach a child how to articulate, project, interact, respond, etc. For this reason, yoga and speech go hand in hand.  

Yoga is also a wonderful medium for teaching other aspects of speech and language development, including language acquisition, vocabulary development, play skills, social skills, self-regulation, and emergent literacy. The Speech Dynamic has combined yoga techniques with speech and language development to develop unique programs for children. These program Brooke’s training as a children’s yoga teacher with her expertise in speech and language development

 

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!
