TELE-SPEECH THERAPY

Speech therapy delivered via an on-line platform or tele-speech therapy, can be as effective as in-person therapy. 

 

There are many ways that we keep clients of all ages with all types of speech and language goals motivated, engaged and entertained all while working on maintaining previously mastered goals and working towards learning new skills.

COMMUNITY OUTINGS

It is very important for our clients to transfer the skills they learn in a therapeutic setting to a more natural environment. We do this by giving our clients the option of doing sessions in various places in the community.

Clients for example, who are working on their conversational skills visit places such as the library, a rec center or a fast food restaurant in order to practice their learned skills and to apply them to real life situations.

Our weekly Saturday sessions have monthly themes with special guests!
