Services We Provide

At Pathways to Communication, we provide individual speech therapy that is tailored to what each child and family may need at any given point in time.

Consultations

A scheduled time where parents and children can come in and see the clinic and begin talking about our services and the child directed treatment that we provide.

Communication Evaluations

Using standardized tests or informal measures to assess the whole child to help determine their current skills. Evaluations encompass all aspects of communication including:


  • ► Language Comprehension
  • ► Language Expression
  • ► Non Verbal Communication (e.g., body language, facial expressions, gestures)
  • ► Metalinguistic Language Skills (e.g., cognitive language skills)
  • ► Social Communication Skills
  • ► Voice (e.g., prosody, pitch and intonation)
  • ► Fluency
  • ► Oral Motor Skills

Individual Therapy

One-on-one therapy tailored to meet the individual and their communication needs.

Treatment

Our therapists implement traditional as well as non-traditional methods of treatment and have a variety of equipment onsite to facilitate communication and interaction. This includes the use of iPads, the XBOX and Wii, for children who learn well through those mediums, in addition to augmentative communication devices (see below). We also have staff onsite that are trained in implementing the Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) and have equipment in the clinic for use during sessions and for home programs.


A variety of theme rooms are set up including a sensory room with climbing and swinging equipment. We have a large space which enhances our ability to design individualized programs.


We exchange information and consult with other therapists with the permission of the family (e.g., school speech and language pathologists (SLP's), ABA therapists and tutors, occupational and physical therapists and teachers). We find this helps us achieve a more integrated therapy approach that results in better treatment planning and facilitates implementation of communication goals across settings. Many of the children we see also receive other types of therapy; we supplement existing therapy and avoid duplication of treatment.

Social Language Learning Groups

These groups focus on putting individualized language skill goals into social contexts and working on interactive skills with peers.

Developing Appropriate Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices

Exposing children, who are unable to produce or understand language, to appropriate alternative forms of communication (pictures, books, speech generating devices, gestures, etc.) to help supplement, enhance, and develop their communication skills.

Home and School Visits

Providing time to periodically coordinate with parents, teachers, and other professionals involved to best serve our clients.
