Welcome to Speech & Language Specialties Inc.

ABOUT US

At Speech and Language Specialties Inc. (SLS) we believe that every child is unique and therefore therapy is individualized. Our mission is to provide the highest level of quality services, through specialized programming, to improve communication skills across all environments, enabling students to enjoy positive social connections in their lives and achieve success in school and life.

 

 

Individual Sessions - All Work and Play

Speech and Language Specialties Inc. (SLS) was designed to diagnose and provide specialized speech and language therapy to children with neurological and developmental disorders. At SLS we believe in a multidisciplinary therapy approach to meet the individual needs of each child. We collaborate with your child’s therapeutic and educational teams. This includes student observation, staff consultation, independent evaluations, IEP review and development. Speech and language therapy may consist of intense one to one training or small group therapy, verbal behavior and the research of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and complimentary methodologies.

 

Social Communication Groups

Social communication therapy may consist of individual or small groups. At SLS we teach the thoughts behind the social skills, helping our clients to see how their actions and behaviors influence others. Many of the concepts and activities we use in therapy are based on the work of award winning experts in the areas of Social Thinking®.Executive Functions and Emotional Regulation,  as well as incorporate language enriched activities that will break down and teach abstract social-thinking to students.

We are continually researching and developing functional and creative intervention tools and programs to support our clients. Our philosophy is that parents and extended family are an integral part of the therapy process. It is our goal to specifically train parents and family members so that they can support positive progress and encourage generalization.
