Early Speech &
Seeking help early for your child’s speech and language delay will give you the best chance to understand the delay and treat the cause. Speech Teach will uncover your child’s potential to use speech and language. Then, we’ll embed techniques that will improve your child’s ability to communicate.
Improving Articulation in Children
Clear speech can help your child with their schoolwork, their friends, and with communicating their needs. Articulation sessions at Speech Teach focus on practical techniques your child can use every day to produce consistently clear speech.
Treating Expressive Language Disorders
Your child can learn to express their thoughts and feelings using single words or words together in sentences. Working together with Speech Teach, your child can increase their vocabulary and their ability to create sentences and stories to express their daily needs, participate in conversations, improve social skills, and to help them succeed academically.
Treating Receptive Language Disorders
Receptive language disorders impact your child’s ability to understand what others are saying. Speech Teach will work with your child to develop techniques and improve these skills so that your child can have a better understanding of their world, and participate in social and academic events. They’ll learn to follow directions while improving their understanding of questions, and conversation and the meaning of words.
Improving overall communication both verbally and non-verbally makes it possible for those with autism to improve their relationships with others and communicate their needs for daily life. We will work with families to promote language development through play and social interaction such as allowing "space" for your child to respond.
Developmental Delay occurs when a child does not reach developmental milestones for their expected age range. Developmental Delays can be genetic in origin (ie. Down Syndrome) or a symptom of an underlying medical condition (ie. Autism Spectrum Disorders) with delays seen in speech, cognition, social, and motor skills. We can help your child's cognitive, social, speech, and language development.
Social Communication Disorders
The ability to understand social information and expectations, as well as navigate social cues, are often difficult for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We can help those with social learning challenges to use strategies to connect better with others and view the world from the perspectives of others.
Social groups and making friends are important parts of childhood. Friendships require social participation, which can be difficult because one needs to be aware of one's own thoughts, feelings, managing emotions and behaviors, and aware of another's perspective and interests.
