The Speech and Language Department is committed to helping children find their unique voices as they use language to think, learn, and develop social relationships. We provide consultations and treatment for a variety of communication difficulties.
We provide up to date, research-driven therapy by highly trained Speech-Language Therapists. We work collaboratively with and provide resources to parents, teachers, and other team members to develop goals and treatment plans, and facilitate communication strategies. Our goal is to provide interventions that allow children to reach their full potential in all areas of communication, including:
A Social Skills Group is led by a Speech and Language Pathologist and fosters self-awareness and self esteem while participants learn how to make friends, fit into a group, take part in conversations, ask appropriate questions, and have fun!
Building social skills using the participants' interests, CDC Social Skills Groups offer a low-stress, accepting environment that encourages learning and growth.
Children of similar age and ability work on peer communication skills and pragmatic language skills in a small group setting run by a speech therapist. The focus of the sessions is interactive peer communication across various structured and naturalistic play activities and activities of daily living. In order to qualify for the group, children must demonstrates skills in most of the fundamental categories based on the current presentation of social weaknesses and strengths, and particularly social language skills as determined by our Speech and Language Pathology department. This is a perfect transition group for children before the social skills group.
