Speech Therapy is led by our Speech and Language Pathologist.  Depending on the child’s needs, speech therapy addresses not only the area of speech articulation skills, but also includes, oral-motor development, verbal and non-verbal communication, nonverbal, pragmatic language, and social communication.  Most children with special needs demonstrate challenges in their language or communication skills, one way or another.  Being able to communicate their wants and needs, will allow children to become more independent and, in many cases, can help reduce problem behaviors that stem from not being able to communicate as well.
