How can my child benefit from speech therapy?
Speech therapy focuses on speech and language development. These are important for the educational and social well-being of your child. Speech-Language Pathology focuses on areas including:
Articulation therapy: An articulation disorder is the decreased production of sounds including substitutions, omissions, additions or distortions that may result in reduced speech intelligibility.
Language therapy: Language therapy focuses on improving a child’s use of grammar, vocabulary, comprehension and social use of language.
Oral Motor Therapy (OMT)/Oral Placement Therapy (OPT): Oral Placement Therapy is a speech therapy which utilizes a combination of: (1) auditory stimulation, (2) visual stimulation and (3) tactile stimulation to the mouth to improve speech clarity. You can find more information about Oral Placement Therapy here
Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC): AAC is a type of communication, other than speech. AAC can include low-tech options (pictures) to high-tech options (computerized speaking devices). Our therapists are trained in selecting an appropriate type of AAC for your child which will be incorporated into the home setting as well.
Feeding therapy: We provide feeding therapy to infants, toddlers and children who have difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) or oral motor issues limiting their feeding and swallowing.
Executive Functioning: Executive functions consist of fundamental skills that allow the brain to organize and act on information. These skills enable people to plan, organize, remember things, prioritize, pay attention and get started on tasks. They also help people use information and experiences from the past to solve current problems. Whether it’s binder organization, time management, study skills, forgetting things or appointments, we can help provide your child with visuals, technology and training to help build executive functioning skills.
