How we can help

If you are concerned about your child’s speech and language development you should definitely consult with a speech-language pathologist. It is true that many children acquire these skills in their own time, however, for those children that require additional support to develop those skills we are here.

For children with limited expressive language skills, we can help develop a means of communicating skills through requesting, turn talking, communicative intent and much more. We can also help children increase auditory comprehension skills through receptive language training of spatial and temporal concepts, multi step commands and many other areas.

Can we help your child to talk? YES! In many ways!

Yes!  The first step is determining why your child is having difficulty reading. Many times it is because the foundational skills (called “phonological awareness”) for reading aren’t solid enough. This is something we can absolutely address. Having a strong foundation to build on will help with both reading and spelling.

PACE stands for Processing and Cognitive Enhancement. It is a specialized program that we use for children with a variety of processing delays. We also use it for children with dyslexia and we have found phenomenal results. A mother of a 9 year old boy with language processing delays, who participated in PACE, stated, ” After my child completed PACE, he soured in all areas of his life. His confidence increased, and he became more athletic. His grades and testing significantly improved. He was able to think quicker, and it improved his time completion on tests and assignments. His brain never regressed, he never forgot what he had learned. It trained his brain in a way that continues to expand.” To learn more about PACE, click here:
