Therapy In Action

Speech-language therapy is designed to meet the individual needs of each child. Developmentally appropriate manipulatives, materials, and music are incorporated to motivate the child and enhance learning.

A direct, explicit, multisensory approach to teaching reading and spelling is critical when teaching those with dyslexia.

The use of books incorporating structured, systematic phonics is considered best practice in teaching children with dyslexia to read.

Many young children do not outgrow immature speech patterns, making their speech difficult to understand. Speech therapy helps children correct their speech sound production.
