Speech & Language

Our extensive speech and language program addresses each student's communication needs on an individualized basis. We foster independence by working towards the highest level of independence possible. For some students, this requires the use of technology, picture symbols, Social Stories, oral-motor exercises, and various other techniques. Increasing each child’s expressive and receptive language is a common goal throughout the school environment as it enhances the students’ confidence, self-esteem, and self-advocacy.

Students need a variety of supports from the speech and language department including innovative technology and streamlined communication skills.
