Our Approach To Therapy
We implement the following therapy methods in our treatment:
Floortime is an evidence-based intervention that is beneficial for all children, meeting them where they are and building upon their strengths and abilities. This approach helps to support children’s development in a warm and interactive environment. Children are encouraged to be creative, curious, and spontaneous, which facilitates cognitive and emotional growth.
PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) is a tactile-kinesthetic approach that uses touch cues to guide a client through a targeted word or phrase. PROMPT is appropriate for clients with a variety of communication disorders, such as clients who have motor speech disorders, articulation disorders, or are non-verbal. This therapy approach is provided by a PROMPT-trained therapist.
Social Thinking® is a social skills curriculum that is intended for clients to develop their social skills. This therapy approach can be used for clients as young as 4-years of age through adulthood.
AAC, or Augmentative and Alternative Communication, can be used for clients who are nonverbal or have limited oral communication skills. It allows for these clients to have an alternate form of communication, such as a high-tech device or a Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).

Types Of Services We Provide
Complimentary phone consultations are designed to determine if your child would benefit from a formal speech-language assessment.
Initial speech-language assessments are conducted to determine the client’s areas of need and if there is a need for services. Assessments typically include a speech-language sample, clinical observations, caregiver report, and formalized testing. If services are needed, the assessment will also help to determine the frequency of therapy needed and recommended treatment goals which will be documented in a detailed written evaluation report.
Treatment is designed to meet the client's individual speech and language needs. Treatment goals will be identified and addressed based on formalized testing, clinical observations, and family input. Services can be provided in-home or in-clinic, depending on the specific needs of the client.
