Articulation & Phonological Processing

This therapy targets speech sound productions. Some children have difficulty with /r/ & /l/ or may lisp their /s/ sound. Others may substitute sounds (e.g., thing for sing) or delete consonants in consonant clusters (e.g., mile for smile). These errors greatly impact intelligibility in connected speech.

Language

Language includes analyzing and assessing all parts of language. Receptive language is the language we understand (e.g., Pet the dog. Tie your shoe), while expressive language is the language we can express, either verbally or in writing (e.g., speaking). Grammar, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics are all included under the language umbrella. Individuals with autism, central auditory processing disorders (CAPD), and aphasia often have difficulties with one or more language-based skills.

Fluency

This therapy targets speaking fluently and smoothly in everyday speech and language. While stuttering remains a not-well-understood disorder, research suggests there is often a genetic component. It can also be a lifetime disorder. However, there are techniques and tips for speaking fluently, and this therapy focuses on adding those techniques to one’s fluency toolbox.
