Language Activities For Kids

The purpose of group language activities for kids is to provide group pediatric speech therapy sessions that focus on carry-over of newly acquired language skills.

Once a child has learned new skills in individual treatment sessions, we provide group treatment so the child can practice using new communication skills in a natural setting with his or her peers. Direct parent education and observation of group treatment sessions allows parents an opportunity to learn how to provide stimulation techniques within the home environment.
