Speech, language and oral motor/feeding impairments can impact your child’s academic and social life. We offer individualized therapy that can help your child succeed in daily life.
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 (please hyperlink this website :https://talktools.com/pages/what-is-opt )
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.
PROMPT: PROMPT stands for PROMPTS for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. PROMPT is provided by a PROMPT-trained therapist and is used with children who present with articulation issues (difficulty producing sound) and motor speech disorders (apraxia and dysarthria). You can find more about PROMPT by visiting their website here (please hyperlink last word with https://www.promptinstitute.com/page/FamiliesWIP )
Early Intervention: Early intervention refers to the treatment of children from 0-3 years old. This is parent directed and play-based therapy that takes place in your home or child’s preschool/daycare.
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.
