Speech Therapy Partnership Project

One of our most exciting innovations is our Speech-Behavior Partnership Project. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) actively collaborate with our Speech Language Pathologists during therapy sessions.

Our Partnership Project focuses on providing services to individuals with Autism and Down Syndrome, as well as those with challenging behaviors. Those individuals whose behaviors significantly interfere with their ability to benefit from traditional speech therapy services have shown measurable benefit from participating in the Partnership Project.

In addition, our collaboration enables us to offer our client’s increased use of augmentative communication devices, on-site personalization of device software, multi-lingual services (English & Spanish) and the integration of computer technologies to increase both behavioral and communication skills.

In addition, the synergy of our team’s skills enable us to meet the challenges of behaviors generated by the frustration our clients experience when they are unable to communicate. Possibility thinking helps us understand the world through their eyes and find solutions that work for everyone.

We believe that our Speech-Behavior Partnership Project is opening new doors as both a model of professional collaboration and as a supportive, successful therapeutic environment for clients.

If you think the Speech-Behavior Partnership Project will benefit you or your child, we encourage you to contact us.
