Early Readers Program

We partner with local preschools to promote speech, language, and pre-literacy skills in a structured program that integrates whole classroom, small group, and individual lessons. Our program is designed for 3 to 5-year-olds with varying levels of development to increase phonemic awareness and promote early literacy skills. The “Early Readers Program” is naturally integrated into the preschool classroom setting and supplements teacher instruction.

Topics include: greetings, personal space, participation in conversations, joining peers, commenting & asking questions, sharing, turn-taking, eye contact, winning & losing, and more! 

The Orton-Gillingham Approach

The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a direct, systematic, and multisensory way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling do not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia. Orton-Gillingham explicitly teaches the association between written symbols and their spoken sounds. Once a strong foundation of phonological awareness is established, skills are introduced in a systematic way, building on previous knowledge. Instruction is always focused upon the individual student and is designed to complement their specific strengths and weaknesses. Multisensory instruction promotes the associations between the auditory, visual, and tactile-kinesthetic sensory pathways which is considered highly effective for students with dyslexia.
Orton–Gillingham also puts a strong emphasis on understanding the “how” and “why” behind reading. By breaking words down into their individual letters and sounds, much of the guesswork is eliminated from the process of learning to read. This helps students develop a new way of learning to overcome their challenges while instilling confidence as they acquire new skills.

Aural Rehabilitation Program

Strong listening skills are the basis for speech and language development. For children with hearing loss learning to listen often requires training. Our program provides specialized therapy to children who use hearing aids or cochlear implants to improve their listening skills and speech understanding through auditory training and speech-language therapy. We utilize the auditory-verbal approach to teach children to use their hearing to develop strong speech and language skills.

We follow the strict LSVT LOUD® protocol to give our clients lasting results. Our LSVT LOUD® program gives clients the ability to confidently and safely increase their vocal intensity to effectively communicate once again.

Aural Rehabilitation Program

While wearing hearing aids, do you:

  • Find yourself saying “huh” or “what?”
  • Hear but don’t fully “understand?”
  • Think others talk too fast or have trouble “keeping up” in conversation?
  • Struggle to remember what someone just said to you?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions you could benefit from aural rehabilitation. Hearing loss can create changes in the brain resulting in difficulty processing and comprehending speech. Auditory training exercises these skills to rebuild the neural pathways that have weakened to improve your understanding.
