Children’s Therapy Place provides pediatric speech-language therapy services to children so they can live life to its fullest by helping promote communication and independence.

Special Programs

It Takes Two to Talk - Hanen Program
The Hanen approach has led the way in changing early language intervention by putting parents first in order to help children. The Hanen approach advocates that the natural environment is the best way for children to learn, providing them with opportunities to communicate with key people in their lives. This approach has led the way in changing early language intervention by putting parents first in order to help children.
Social Thinking
Our therapists utilize the Social thinking curriculum by Michelle Garcia Winner in both individual and group sessions to facilitate improved social/pragmatic​ skills. The curriculum is intended for students with social learning disabilities, especially those with autistic spectrum conditions. Its main focus is on teaching students to think about how others perceive them.
Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)
PECS is a unique alternative/augmentative communication system developed in the USA in 1985 by Andy Bondy, Ph.D., and Lori Frost, MS, CCC-SLP. PECS was first implemented with pre-school students diagnosed with autism at the Delaware Autism Program. Since then, PECS has successfully been implemented worldwide with thousands of learners of all ages who have various cognitive, physical and communication challenges.
Tongue Thrust/Orofacial Myology
Training in the use of muscle-specific exercises to improve coordination and function of the face and mouth necessary for optimal breathing, feeding and articulation skills.
Group Therapy
Our therapists provide a variety of groups including teen social skills, elementary age social skills and early language groups.
