Our SLPs utilize a play-based approach to therapy in order to treat deficit areas in a meaningful
and motivating environment. You may catch them “playing” in order to create a learning experience
that is joyful, meaningful, interactive, and engaging. Through this approach they selectively choose
words or targets that are relevant, naturally occurring in play, and frequently used by the child.
Utilizing play to target specific goals promotes carry over of learned skills into the home
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.
But for children, play is serious learning.”
– Fred Rogers
The Orton-Gillingham program is an evidenced based teaching approach specifically designed to help
struggling readers by explicitly teaching the connections between letters and sounds through a
multi-sensory approach. This effective approach teaches reading, writing, and spelling using sight,
hearing, touch, and movement to help students connect language with letters and words.
Tethered oral tissues, or “ties”, occur when there is tight or excess tissue causing decreased
movement within the oral cavity. TOTS can affect the tongue, lips, and/or cheeks causing
difficulties with any of the following areas of function: speech production, feeding, sleeping, and
nasal breathing. Our SLPs provide evaluation, collaboration with TOT release provider, aftercare,
and pre- and post- release therapy.
