SPEECH, LANGUAGE & HEARING THERAPY
Speech, Language, and Hearing Therapy includes individual and group based speech therapy provided by a certified Speech Language Pathologist. Speech therapy includes expanding an individual’s receptive, expressive and pragmatic language skills. Goals such as increasing an individual’s ability to follow directions and assisting the individual in identifying age appropriate concepts would be target goal areas for receptive language. Expressive language goals may range from expanding an individual’s syntactical utterances to enhancing an individual’s ability to utilize an augmentative voice output system. Pragmatic language goals include focusing on social language whereby goals such as: body proximity, eye contact and reciprocity during conversation are areas of focus.
