We work with children and adults with a variety of challenges including:
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Receptive and Expressive Language Disorders
We provide evaluations of speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing function for adults and children both in-person and remotely. We work with patients, caregivers, physicians, teachers, schools, and employers to provide timely and useful information regarding communication and swallowing status with recommendations for follow up and treatment as indicated.
Individualized treatment is available for children and adults both in-person and remotely to address speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing concerns. Treatment is individualized in order to meet each person’s goals and objectives. We incorporate families, caregivers, physicians, teachers and employers in treatment planning to assure that services promote functional growth and change.
We also work with children and adults without diagnoses who may be looking to improve their skills or engage with others in a supportive setting to practice speech, language, and thinking skills in our Brain Builders Classes.
Brain Builders Classes for Adults provide high quality, easily accessible information to adults as they experience normal aging as well as neurologic change.
Classes focus on strategy training for communication and memory, information sharing, reminiscence, and socialization. There is also education for caregivers focusing on support and guidance in dealing with care receivers with cognitive/communication challenges.
Classes are lively and fun and are available in-person throughout the Southcoast region or to anyone on-line.
Classes have been running since 2015 and attendees report feeling empowered with improvements in self-esteem, social connectedness and a willingness to communicate with others. Participants have re-entered the community via social opportunities including community/family events, high school reunions, weekly religious services, volunteerism and correspondence via e-mail, Facebook and Skype, all due to improved socialization skills and gained confidence following class participation.
Brain Builders Classes for Children support healthy development and social wellness in children of all ages.
Classes for younger children enhance age appropriate speech, language and social skill development through lively, interactive instruction and peer support.
Classes for adolescents focus on social skill development in order to improve self-esteem and self-confidence through the use of good manners.
Parenting tips are also provided in how to interact with/relate to children in order to promote healthy development and good behavior.
*All of our classes for children and adults are for education and socialization purposes only and not intended to diagnose/treat any condition or problem. Classes are not covered by insurance.
