HOW CAN WE HELP YOUR CHILD?
Phonological Awareness & Literacy
Phonological Awareness is the awareness of, and ability to manipulate, the individual sounds in words. Phonological Awareness is important for the development of literacy skills such as reading and spelling. Well-developed reading and spelling skills are essential for academic achievement.
Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)
Includes Specific Learning Disabilities in Reading (otherwise known as Dyslexia) and Writing (otherwise known as Dysgraphia).
Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS)
we are also certified providers of the following evidence-based treatment programs:
Sounds Write is a phonics program that is designed to equip professionals, teachers and parents with the skills to teach reading, spelling and writing skills. It is a highly structured, incremental and multi-sensory method of teaching children to identify and manipulate sounds in words, and represent the sounds of English in written form. It is recognised as a high-quality, evidence-based Structured Synthetic Phonics Program. This means that it can be used as an intervention program for children diagnosed with Specific Learning Disorders in Reading (Dyslexia) and Writing (Dysgraphia), as well as provide support to children who have ‘missed’ fundamental elements in previous literacy instruction. To determine whether Sounds Write is suitable for your child, please get in touch with us.
More Than Words® - The Hanen Program® for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
The Hanen ‘More Than Words’® program is designed specifically for parents of children (5 years and under) with Autism Spectrum Disorders or other social communication difficulties. This program is designed to equip parents and caregivers with the skills they need to support their child’s social communication, back-and-forth interactions, play skills and imitation skills. These fundamental skills are essential for helping a child reach their full communicative potential.
In addition to coaching parents using Hanen principles as part of our individual client therapy services, we are proud to offer More Than Words® workshops for parents and carers in personalised, small-group settings. For more information about our parent workshops and the latest calendar of events, please contact us.
PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets)
PROMPT is an evidence-based, tactile-kinaesthetic approach for the treatment of a range of speech disorders. It involves the use of touch cues to a child’s articulators (i.e. lips, jaw, tongue) to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence. This technique is used to develop motor control and correct oral muscular movements. PROMPT is most frequently used in the treatment of speech sound disorders, motor speech disorders and in non-verbal children. To determine whether PROMPT is suitable for your child, feel free to contact us for more information.
