SLP – Speech and Language Pathology

Here at Blossom Children’s Center, our Speech Language Pathologists use evidence-based therapy strategies and techniques to improve speech and language skills in children as young as 18 months old. At Blossom, our SLPs work to promote functional communication to improve and support social interactions in every environment of a child’s life. Our SLPs have additional specialized training in Autism interventions (e.g., DIRFloortime, ESDM, PRT), Augmentative and Alternative Communication (e.g., PECS, LAMP), and Childhood Apraxia of Speech (e.g., PROMPT, DTTC) and treat the following disorders/delays:

  • Language Delays and Disorders: Including receptive language, difficulty understanding verbal and non-verbal language as well as expressive language, utilizing verbal and non-verbal language to communicate.
  • Speech Sound Disorders: Including articulation and phonology disorders as well as treatment of childhood apraxia of speech.
  • Pragmatic Language Disorders: Including difficulty with social skills, for example: initiating and terminating conversation, eye contact and facial expressions.
  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication: Including implementation of alternative communication modalities for children with severe expressive language or motor speech delays. This may include gestural sign, low-tech, and/or high-tech options.

At Blossom Children’s Center, we also offer a speech therapy group called Preschool Pals.

Preschool Pals is therapeutic language-based preschool preparation program. The goal of Preschool Pals is to encourage peer interactions and target social and language skills in a naturalistic setting. In Preschool Pals, we practice transitioning, working within the group and becoming more independent. Preschool Pals helps children generalize their learned skills from individual speech therapy sessions to a more natural, school-like environment.
