Individualized Programs

Our goal for every child is to help them overcome their own unique daily challenges while ultimately improving overall communication. Each child participating in our language therapy sessions has their own specific needs and learning capabilities.

Each introduction begins with an evaluation process aimed at correctly identifying the root cause while further educating parents and family.

  • Medical History
  • Standardized Testing
  • Oral Motor Evaluation
  • Our therapists begin by collecting a complete medical history while interacting with the child and family to observe for any social communication disorders that may initially stand out.
  • Standardized testing for speech and language as well as auditory processing is given to identify possible causes such as attention disorders.
  • A detailed oral motor evaluation is then used to help identify feeding disorders, muscle coordination difficulties, reflux issues, sensory processing disorders, and even picky eating which can be linked to many other issues.

Once the evaluation is complete, we review all findings with the parents and introduce a dedicated therapist that will go over an individualized plan for the child. Therapy is encouraged 1-2 times per week with as much parent involvement as possible to maintain progress at home.

Some children may also be referred to our unique social language groups program for further social communication improvement among peers. Bilingual therapists are also available upon request if needed.
