Social communication therapy can occur individually, in peer groups, and in home or community environments. We utilize current research and treatment methods to help individuals of all ages improve their ability to:
communicate for social purposes in ways that are appropriate for various social contexts
change communication style to match the context or needs of different listeners
follow rules for conversation and storytelling
understand figurative or ambiguous language
understand what is not explicitly stated by others
Children or adults can experience difficulties with fluency. We have a solid background of experience working with people who stutter. Whether your child is demonstrating early signs of stuttering or you are an adult who would like to revisit therapy, we can help.
executive function skill coaching
Executive function skills coaching is designed to support students and adults by teaching and monitoring the skills, tools, and strategies necessary to improve deficits in executive functioning that impact school, work, and domestic tasks.
Executive function skills are those skills that we use to plan, organize, problem-solve, set goals, and execute tasks in our daily lives. Difficulties with executive function may include the following:
difficulty planning a project
trouble comprehending how much time a project will take to complete
struggling to tell a story (verbally or in writing)
trouble communicating details in an organized, sequential manner
difficulty with memorization and retrieving information from memory
trouble initiating activities or tasks, or generating ideas independently
difficulty completing all of the steps in a task or project
augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)
We are very passionate about developing and implementing AAC solutions for individuals with complex communication needs. We will work closely with clients, caregivers and other providers to create systems that enable individuals with disabilities to participate actively in all aspects of their lives.
In the clinic, iPads are available to trial application-based communication programs or other software. We also work closely with other agencies to assist our clients with loaner devices and funding programs.
Individualized education plan (IEP)
Consultative services are available to help support the educational IEP process. These services can include goal consultation, pre-meeting planning, collaboration with educational teams, SLP attendance at meetings, and advocacy assistance for school or community matters.
