One-to-one sessions provide individual attention in a nurturing, sensory-based, therapeutic setting. Multiple techniques are used to meet each child's needs, and treatment plans are individualized and unique.
PROMPT is an acronym for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. The technique is a tactile-kinesthetic approach that uses touch cues to a patient’s articulators (jaw, tongue, lips) to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence. The technique develops motor control and the development of proper oral muscular movements, while eliminating unnecessary muscle movements, such as jaw sliding and inadequate lip rounding.

Social Group Sessions
Small group sessions encourage articulation carryover and language skill development that allow children to mimic natural social interactions.These groups allow children to utilize core skills in a socially motivating way.
Virtual therapy is offered to provide speech and language therapy during this time of social distancing in a play-based setting. As a part of virtual sessions, caregivers will learn techniques to support language development at home. We are happy that virtual therapy has proven to be very effective.
Our aphasia specialist provides one-to-one sessions for adults following stroke or traumatic brain injury.
“Sarah has been a godsend! When we first met her, my daughter only said two words. Now, she is speaking in full sentences. Thank you thank you thank you, Sarah!.”
“Sarah has been working with our son for a year and a half and we cannot express out appreciation. When my son started therapy with Sarah, his speech was barely understandable. Through PROMPT therapy with Sarah, he has grown incredibly to a little guy who has the confidence and skill to chat on and on. He adores Sarah and can't wait to see her each week. I cannot begin to express our appreciation for Sarah's support and the impact it has had on our lives.”
“We are so happy to be working with Sarah. Since starting therapy, my daughter has begun speaking in full sentences and her articulation is wonderful!”
N truly looks forward to her time with you each week. You have been such an encouraging, positive light for her. We are so grateful for your help and so proud of how far she has come - it has truly made a difference.
