Therapy classes are the most naturalistic, real-world environment where children learn to be successful in their everyday lives. Our therapy classes are the fastest route toward seeing and feeling the effects of therapy within your child’s day than with individual therapy alone.

It’s always Spring, with language budding everywhere!
Focus: Kinder Early Language and Milestone Development
Ages: 3-5 years old
This class is builds upon the foundational skills learned in previous classes. Children begin working on increasing vocabulary, speech sound production, sentence length and complexity, asking and answering questions, telling stories, attending for longer durations, pre-writing skills, cutting skills, and increasing complexity of social skills and play.
“I’ve got something to say!”
Focus: Phonological Development
Ages: 4-6 years old
Phonological processes are patterns of sound substitution which negatively impact speech intelligibility, and which many of our children continue to use beyond the typical age. Using a evidenced-based approach, children will be immersed with appropriate speech patterns to improve their awareness, and then production will be targeted.
Lizards and Wizards
Focus: Speech Sound Development
Ages: 5-8 years old
This evidenced-based class increases your child’s awareness of their speech sounds, and corrects your child’s sound production to improve clarity. The fun activities and games don’t require large attention spans, which allows even young children to attend to and practice target sounds while staying motivated. Students learn quickly to monitor their speech and self- correct their sound errors. This program is appropriate for children with speech sound production errors who are at least 5yrs old and able to attend for at least 5 minutes independently.
GET READY, DO, DONE!
Helping your child become their own CEO
Focus: Executive Function Skills
Ages: 8-12 years old
This class improves executive functioning: planning, sequencing, organizing, initiating large tasks, time management, and more. The skills your child will develop in this class are necessary to basic activities of daily living. Unfortunately, our modern world has created new expectations which require things to be done as quickly as possible, and with that comes a certain lack of patience on parents/teachers part. So instead of allowing the child to develop these skills, adults default to becoming the executive: we tell the child each discrete step required to complete the task. So instead of saying “get ready for bed”, we wind up telling the child “shower, put on pj’s, brush your teeth, and go to bed”. This class uses crafts, worksheets/homework tasks, and other large projects to help children learn to break down large tasks, prioritize, and implement their plans, while also learning how to self-monitor to ensure they stay on task.
Do you see what I see?
Focus: Comprehension Strategy building
Ages: 8+ years old
This class improves a child’s ability to visualize the language they hear/read. It helps make the process of “thinking” more concrete, which then improves comprehension, descriptions, and memory, among other vital academic skills.
Focus: Fluency and articulation
Ages: 6-10 years old
This class helps children who experience stuttering and have difficulty expressing their ideas and thoughts. It focuses on stuttering/fluency education, desensitization, basic communication, fluency shaping and stuttering modification. Activities include journaling, reader’s theater, choral/partner reading, and more.
SUPER SOCIAL SKILLS
Focus: Pragmatic communication
This class designed to help pre-teens navigate the complexities of interacting with the people around them. Be it at school, the mall, or even at home with you! Social communication encompasses a wide range of skills such as how to start or continue a conversation, ways to show you’re listening to someone using your whole body (as opposed to saying “yeah, uh huh” while looking at your phone, or even something as simple as figuring out how to tell if someone is happy or angry with you based on their face/tone of voice. Social Group is a judgement free zone for your child to learn the “ins and outs” of socializing, while having a blast with same-aged peers.
3 Key Benefits of Therapy Classes
Classes Mimic The Real World
Whether it be writing legibly at school or verbally communicating with peers, our therapy classes prepare children to engage in the world we live in.
Boundaries Become Learning Experiences
In therapy classes children practice sharing, taking turns, starting conversations, and following the rules. Learning these skills in a safe environment will help your child to implement these in everyday life.
Positive Peer Influence
Children who can identify the error in someone else’s speech or movement will be more likely to recognize their own. They can apply this knowledge to their own growth, all while encouraging their friends.
