Most all of my students look forward to their speech-language therapy time! In speech we use various games and activities to give students opportunities to work on their target skills, whether it be a specific speech sound or word, using various parts of speech correctly, or learning to use their communication in social settings. Young students may be working on using words, signs, or gestures for beginning communication. Other students access Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices to assist them in expressing themselves. It often looks like play, but there is lots of important work going on!
I value the relationship between therapist, teacher, child, and parent and invite you to stop in at any time to discuss your child's progress or direction of therapy. You are your child's expert and an integral part of their therapy. I will do my best to provide you with the supports you need to nurture your child's communication skills in the home and out in the community.
