Therapy

Individual and Group Therapy

We provide individual and group therapy sessions.  Frequency, length and duration of therapy are determined by the findings and clinical recommendations from a current evaluation report within the past year, as well as the clinical judgment of the treating therapist.

  • Therapy programs are designed to meet the individual needs of each child in order to maximize their communication abilities.
  • Formal treatment plans outlining a child’s goals and progress reports are completed at regular intervals to document the child’s ongoing progress related to the goals and continued areas of need.
  • Family involvement and instruction are an integral part of all therapy programs.  Home programming is emphasized to support and promote carryover of skills.
  • Computer-assisted diagnostic and therapy tools are available and incorporated into the programs of those individuals for whom it is indicated to be beneficial.
  • Therapy is coordinated with the other professionals participating in the child’s care.  Services available within TLC include: audiology, occupational therapy, counseling, psychological and educational testing and tutoring.  Referrals to other disciplines for additional services are made when appropriate.
