In Person Evaluation and Therapy Services:
Augmentative and Alternative Communication
We work hard to help our clients with spoken speech and language skills. Sometimes, that needs a little boost with added ways to communicate including speech output devices and IPads, written language, sign language and gestures. These have not been shown to harm speech, and in many cases have helped speech develop and/or improve.
Adults and children may have neurological impairments, such as Aphasia, Dementia, or Traumatic Brain Injury and other brain-based communication problems. We work with people with these problems to help restore communication, memory, and thinking skills.
Early Literacy Development
Children who have spoken language delays are at risk for reading and writing failure because spoken and written language are closely related. Pre-reading and pre-writing skills for those children are added in to spoken language and speech intervention as needed.
Stuttering, or problems using fluent, smooth speech can cause disruption to the flow of communication. We use well-tested methods to help increase fluency.
Language Skills for Academic Environments
Sometimes, speech and language delays cause a problem with academic performance. We provide Language-Based Academic Support in Reading and Writing and work on language-related skills important to school success.
We evaluate and provide therapy for understanding and using language. They are the basis for language and communication success.
Sometimes, the appropriate use of language for social purposes is a challenge. For those with this issue, we provide services to help clients use and interpret appropriate social communication in interactions with others
Speech Sound Development and Articulation
Most of us develop speech skills so easily that we don't even think about it. For some children and adults, it's hard to achieve clear, understandable speech. We provide training and family support to build speech to be more understandable
Use of a healthy voice for speaking and singing for those with vocal dysfunction can reflect problems with vocal folds and impact communication effectiveness. We provide a variety of voice therapy approaches, and are certified in Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT), an internationally recognized voice therapy approach.
Our services are family-friendly!
