Speech Therapy

Speech/Language and Feeding Intervention

A Speech/Language Pathologist provides Speech/Language and Feeding intervention. Speech/Language Therapy serves to facilitate improved communication skills for those who have Communication deficits. A Speech and Language Evaluation is conducted to identify and diagnose Communication Disorders and determine candidacy for therapy. In addition, if indicated, a feeding and swallowing evaluation can be performed. If therapy is indicated, individualized therapy goals are formulated to address identified needs.

Speech/Language therapy can work to improve speech sound production, interactive skills, and expressive and receptive language skills. For individuals who are non-verbal, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can be considered. For those individuals who have feeding and swallowing needs, compensatory strategies can be addressed in therapy or through consultation with Support Staff in order to ensure safety and maximize nutrition.
