Services: Speech Therapy, Language Development Services

Therapy:

Sherry provides individual, in-home speech and language therapy to children ranging from one- to ten-years-old, building speech and language skills through play. Whether it’s taking cars through a carwash with your preschooler or sailing a pirate ship across the table with your five-year-old, Sherry utilizes imagination and play to communicate and teach speech and language skills.

A vital component of the therapy process is the involvement of the child’s parents, who are encouraged to be part of the session and are given weekly suggestions to help improve progress. After watching a session, parents often say, “Now I know how to do it!” or “I learned so much today.” Daily parental reinforcement of target sounds, language structures, fluency and social language goals will help children to maximize their therapy experience and improve their speech and language progress overall.
