Speech & Language Therapy builds skills using focused drill, parent training and home practice. Age-appropriate play, songs and activities are used to motivate and teach children, especially when they are young. Most children are having so much fun, they don’t even realize that they are learning essential skills. Parents are encouraged to collaborate with Therapists.
