Our role in the school setting is to support students with communication difficulties by providing assessments, reports, programming and consultation for staff and parents as well as augmentative communication and direct intervention for students via VC.
Speech Articulation and Fluency - How we produce sounds and connect them to form words.
Receptive Language - How we understand and process information
Expressive Language - How we put our thoughts and ideas into words that are grammatically correct and make sense for others to understand
Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC) - Communication methods used to supplement or replace speech for those with impairments (permanent or temporary) in the production of or comprehension of spoken or language.
