Language Therapy

Alanguage disorder is an impairment in comprehension and/or use of spoken or written language. A problem in the area of language can interfere with a child’s learning and development, which can affect their form (grammar, syntax), content (vocabulary), and/or use (social communication) of language. Early difficulties with oral language have been linked to later struggles with reading and writing; therefore, early detection, evaluation, and treatment is important. Our receptive and expressive language therapy services are delivered using an individualized cognitive-linguistic approach in the following areas:

  • Auditory Processing and Listening Comprehension
  • Delayed Language
  • Higher-order Language Skills:
  • Inferential thinking
  • Language Syntax, Grammar, and Spelling Skills
  • Paraphrasing and summarizing
  • Reasoning
  • Social communication and Perspective-taking
  • Understanding and use of non-literal, ambiguous, and figurative language
  • Vocabulary, Word Retrieval, and Verbal Organizational Skills (oral narrative skills)

Our therapists are certified in the Hanen Method® to support families and their children with language delays. Additionally, we are trained in the following evidenced based multi-sensory language and literacy teaching programs: Visualizing and Verbalizing ®; LiPS ®; Seeing Stars ® Orton Gillingham®; Wilson Fundations®; as well as Preventing Academic Failure®.
