Is your child struggling to articulate?

  • An articulation disorder involves problems making sounds. Sounds can be substituted, left off, added or changed. 
  • A phonological process disorder involves patterns of sound error.

What is Apraxia?

Apraxia is a motor speech sound disorder. It is sometimes referred to as Apraxia of Speech (AOS) or Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS). Apraxia is neurological meaning that it affects the brain pathways involved in planning the sequence of movements needed to produce speech. The brain knows what it wants to say, but cannot properly plan and sequence the required speech sound movements. A child might not be able to move their lips or tongue in the right ways, even though their muscles are not weak. Sometimes, the child might not be able to say much at all.

Visualizing and Verbalizing® Program for Cognitive Development, Comprehension & Thinking

The Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) program develops concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined or imaged gestalt from language—as a basis for comprehension and higher order thinking. The development of concept imagery improves reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing.

Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech (LiPS®)

The LiPS® Program teaches students to discover and label the oral-motor movements of phonemes. Students can then verify the identity, number, and sequence of sounds in words.
Once established, phonemic awareness is then applied to reading, spelling, and speech.
