At Small Talk Pediatric Speech Language Pathologists, we offer individual or group therapy sessions for your child. Individual therapy sessions are typically scheduled for fifty minutes but may vary based on your child’s needs. Pragmatic (social use of language) groups are available based on interest and compatibility. Evaluations and consultations are available in the following areas:
- Speech / Oral-Motor-assesses articulation (speech sounds) and oral-motor structure and function
- Feeding / Oral-Motor-assesses feeding skills and oral-motor structure and function
- Speech and Language-assesses articulation, oral-motor structure and function, expressive language skills (what your child is able to say/verbalize) and receptive language skills (what your child understands)
- Language-assesses expressive and receptive language skills
I am trained in Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets (PROMPT), Rapid Prompting Method (RPM), Beckman oral-motor techniques, the Affect-Based Language Curriculum (ABLC) approach, and I utilize neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT) techniques. In addition, I have completed many other courses and specialized training in the areas of oral-motor, feeding, speech and language issues.
