In REACH GIFT OF SPEECH 2021, you will meet Nicole, who started REACH speech therapy sessions at 3 years old with no verbal language. When she graduated from the under 6 program, she was communicating verbally using words and short phrases and was using the ipad to learn to use longer sentences. Nicole is now in the over 6 program and continues to make progress with her language, academic and self-help skills.
Speech therapy sessions assess and support issues related to communication development in children. Areas of development include: production and sequencing of speech sounds, learning words and putting them together to produce phrases and sentences, understanding questions and following directions, social communication skills, fluency or stuttering, voice disorders, hearing loss, and, alternative and augmentative communications needs.
