Treatment

Treatment

Evidence-based speech, language and literacy therapy designed collaboratively, targeting everyday communication skills to help your child succeed. Activities are guided by your child’s interests and specific goals. We will work together to determine a treatment approach that suits your child’s needs and your family’s schedule. We offer both virtual and in-person sessions, depending on the child’s needs and goals.

Treatment

Treatment sessions will always be play-based and led by the child’s interests. Sessions will be fun and engaging for the child and easy for parents to replicate at home, in-between sessions.

Goals will be determined collaboratively by the family, child and SLP, based on real-life communication needs and concerns. They will be tailored to you and your child’s unique interests, needs and skills.

What do we target:

Expressive Language/Use of Language

Does your child have difficulty expressing themselves? Do they become frustrated when others cannot understand them?
  • Combining words together in meaningful ways
  • Expressing wants and needs effectively
  • Increasing vocabulary (using a larger variety of nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs)
  • Improving grammar, sentence structure, word structure and order 
  • Increasing sentence length and improving overall complexity of sentences
  • Asking meaningful questions and participating in conversations with friends and family
  • Improving higher level language skills e.g., such as telling stories, giving directions, summarizing text etc.

Receptive Language/Understanding of Language

Does your child have difficulty understanding what you say? Do you often have to repeat instructions or show them what to do? Do teachers tell you they have trouble listening?
  • Following and understanding single step and multi-step directions
  • Understanding a variety of different words and concepts
  • Understanding grammatical structures (e.g. word endings such as plurals, past-tense, verb endings etc.)
  • Understanding and responding to questions accurately

Speech Sounds/Articulation

Are your child’s speech sounds unclear? Do friends and family often ask you to clarify what your child just said?
  • Increasing overall speech clarity and intelligibility

  • Engaging in meaningful conversations with peers and family
  • Building meaningful relationships at school and in the community
