What We Offer
Evaluation / Assessments
Speech, language, and literacy services typically begin with an evaluation. Our evaluations are individualized based on parent concerns and developmental history. We will include parent input, standardized assessments, observation, and therapist-child interaction. Following the evaluation, we will review the results with the family, and together we will determine a plan of care and treatment goals based on the child's strengths and challenges.
If your child is experiencing any of the following, you may benefit from an evaluation:
Limited words or vocalizations
Speech that is hard to understand and/or disfluency
Trouble asking and answering questions
Difficulty interacting with peers
Limited or repetitive play
Challenges reading or learning to read or difficulty learning the alphabet and/or letter sounds.
Melodic Based Communication Therapy
MBCT is a speech and language intervention meant to make the use of the right hemispherical strengths of the child with Autism Spectrum Disorder by using standardized melodies and rhythm in order to increase verbal output.
Play Based Therapy
We choose to proivide intervention services through various methods of play because play is meaningful to children. Children learn best when they are in charge of the activity. The development of symbolic play is highly correlated with language development. Play can happen anywhere, with anything. Most importantly, play is fun and having fun is linked to learning!
