From the time we are born to the time we pass on, we use sounds and words to interact. Sounds like a snort, a giggle, a sigh all eloquently convey meaning. Similarly, non-verbal language like an eye roll, a shrug, a smile allow us to express our feelings.
Speech sounds make words that make sentences that make stories that teach us about our world. Each word contains imagery, experience, taste, texture and so much more....
At the highest levels, words can inspire, soothe, change our attitudes and transform us.
Language therapy teaches our children to interact with peers while expanding vocabulary, grammar and the social use of language. While these skills must continue to develop as our children grow and expectations increase, the greatest discovery is the love for words and languages and watching how words invite our children to be curious about the world around them.
* Assessment is required prior to placement.
