What is Speech-Language Therapy?
Speech and language therapy helps children and adolescents with expressive and receptive language development, articulation/speech production, social communication, auditory processing, voice, resonance, and fluency so a child can express their wants and needs, interact and communicate effectively with others, develop meaningful relationships, and participate in family, school, and community settings with success.
Cobblestone Therapy Group’s Speech-Language Pathologists have extensive training and experience providing speech-language therapy services to facilitate maximum progress in the following areas:
Assistive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Devices
Cleft Palate, VPI, and other resonance disorders
Childhood dysarthria and myofunctional speech disorders
Receptive/expressive language disorders
Apraxia of speech
Oral motor skills
Feeding: mechanical and sensory based
In the area of speech and language, our clinicians have a variety of specialized training that we incorporate into the therapy sessions to include:
P.R.O.M.P.T: 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.
