Speech Therapy

speech - language - AAC - feeding

Speech Therapy is one of the multidisciplinary offerings for our enrolled learners! 

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder will demonstrate a wide range of abilities in language and cognition across the spectrum. Not all of our enrolled learners may need speech therapy services, but research suggests that approximately 40 - 70% of children with ASD would benefit! (1)

 

We offer speech therapy services in-Center because we know that collaboration is key, and having experts in communication AND behavior help implement the most effective practices. (2)
