Speech and Language Therapy
Our speech therapists provide a comprehensive evalaution and develop a treatment plan to meet the client and their families needs. Therapy sessions are designed around the treatment plan with ongoing adjustment made as the client meets their goals or new needs arise. For our young clients, therapy is play based. Our goal is to be able to target specific areas while our friends are discovering new toys. As our clients approach school age, we begin to introduce table activities. Our pediatric clientele include speech and language delays, developmental and congenital disorders as well as feeding. Our adult clients encompass aphasia, swallowing, and cognitive linguistic deficts secondry to stroke, TBI, and neurological disorders.
OT is a fun learning environment for our kiddos! They enjoy vestibular activities on our swings during warm up for core strength and hand/eye coordination and sensory integration. Sensory exploration is always a fun time, searching through a box of rice or beans for favorite small toys. Fine motor work is easily disguised with a variety of fun activities. Children love using the fun tweezers to pick up things throughout the room. Thera putty can hide surprises for our friends to find.
All the kids love Miss Michelle's creative use of space while addressing her clients needs. She can frequently be heard with the kids navigating through the office space. On nice days Michelle can be found outside with her kids teaching functional mobility. The focus with PT is work through play skills to build muscle strength, posture, coordination and balance. These skills lay the foundation for increased success with their speech and fine motor skills.
