Early Intervention services, including Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy, are a very specialized area. They require knowledge of not only the delays and disorders (e.g. Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Autism, Selective Mutism, Language Delay, etc.) but also the unique paradigm of caregiver education. We have many years of experience working with this age group.
Education based English speech therapy services for expats and others who attend international schools can be rather difficult to obtain. Often, international schools do not have the services available for English speaking students due to lack of available English speaking Speech Therapists in their location. We can flexibly work with your child's school and teachers.
While many countries have excellent Speech Therapists, with an emergent medical situation an English speaking Speech Therapist is essential for immediate communication. Whether for acute or long term care, speech therapy in your chosen location does not have to be a hardship. We can provide you with the most advanced speech therapy services.
Evaluations of speech and language disorders must be performed to rigorous standards. We use a variety of measures to test for a broad range of disorders and combine those results with information gathered through interactions with the client and the client's loved ones to arrive at a genuine assessment of the disorder.
Often it is difficult for professionals in remote areas to acquire quality training. We can teach about a variety of topics including Alternative and Augmentative Communication, Behavior Modification, Executive Function, Language Processing, Attention Maintenance and Focus Shifting, Working Memory, and more.
