Our Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) aims to promote positive and effective communication skills for you and your child. At Movin’ Mountains we offer comprehensive assessments of your child’s communication needs and partner with you in establishing a therapy program with functional goals that fit into your every day life. Healthy communication growth supports literacy development, peer relationships, emotional regulation, and community participation. Together we can help your child reach their full potential. We believe your child can move mountains. We are here to help show you how!
Our Speech-Language Pathologist has experience in working with children of all abilities. This includes, but is not limited to children diagnosed with:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Learning Disabilities
- Down Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Hearing Loss
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Developmental Delay
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Your child does not need to have a diagnosis to benefit from our services. Many children need a little bit of extra support to be able to do the things they love or need to do. We will partner with you in addressing day-to-day challenges and often arrange consultations with other members of your child’s care team to help develop strategies for daily functioning at home, at school, and in the community.
I am always looking for strategies to help my clients with their speech therapy goals. One resource I find really helpful is the Hanen Centre, a Canadian charitable organization that works globally to support parents, caregivers educators and SLPs. One really important technique to help children learn language is the “back and forth” play or the “taking turns” strategy. Having a back-and-forth conversation with a child may seem like a small thing, but it has a big impact on their language skills.Read Post
