The goal of providing Speech-Language Therapy Services: is to help your child improve their abilities to communicate at an age-appropriate level. I work on improving a person’s speech intelligibility by using strategies that are motivating and fun activities to encourage children to be successful communicators.
Children who struggle with:
Speech: Improving a person’s speech intelligibility. Articulation targeting of the sounds of error. Difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly. Therapy is to help say the production of sound correctly.
Language: Receptive language difficulties understanding or processing language. Expressive language difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary. Therapy is to help with skills such as i.e. (following directions, grammar and vocabulary.
Fluency: People who stutter have trouble maintaining fluent speech. Therapy is to help increase fluency.
Social skills: Social pragmatic skills include the ability to use verbal or nonverbal social language with others. Therapy is to help improve communication between people. Strategies teach better social self-awareness, perspective taking, self- regulation, executive functioning and social skills.
I am self employed working at several schools across the valley in Arizona. If you are inquiring on services for your school please email me and I will provide you with contact information.
Although I work in school settings providing Speech and Language Therapy, I have found there is a great need for some children that may not necessary need therapy, but coaching on specific skills that may fall under Speech and Language components. That’s were my services come in!
Three Main Reasons I provide private coaching for Speech and Language Skills:
Students are receiving services at school, but require more practice on how use and apply other skills in everyday life. Skills holding them back from communicating better with peers and adults in real life situations.
Parents do not want their child “labeled” or tested and put on a IEP . Some parents do not want their child pulled out of academics or specials at school to work on skills.
A student did not qualify to receive services due to their academic testing strengths, however, struggles with certain skills. Parents are seeking for help.
