- Abilities First
Learning to communicate is vitally important in life. For many, communication comes easy.
For others who experience speech or language delays, fluency disorders, hearing problems, or other impairments, communication skills must be developed through Speech-Language Pathology. Our speech-language pathologists introduce a variety of fun, experience-based language activities to promote curiosity, conversation and learning. Augmentative communication devices, gestures, and assistive technology are a few adaptations to foster independent communication skills. In addition, feeding and oral motor needs can be addressed by our team.
