Articulation and Oral Motor therapy and evaluations are conducted on children. A traditional articulation evaluation examines which sounds your child is having difficulty producing. An oral motor evaluation determines WHY your child has difficulty saying specific sounds.
A language evaluation determines which language techniques and tools (toys, games, books, songs) will foster optimal developmental interaction. A language evaluation examines listening, vocabulary, and grammar.
Kindergarten prep includes preparing your child for a Manhattan kindergarten admission test, which requires a variety of kindergarten readiness skills. Skills addressed include improving attention, following directions, understanding stories, vocabulary, improving general knowledge, articulation, problem solving, memory, critical thinking, and pre-reading and math skills. Confidence and self-esteem are critical for kindergarten success.
Speech therapy progress is consistently reviewed with parents and homework activities that suit child and family are recommended. Stephanie’s programs encourage Manhattan parents to practice speech therapy, oral motor therapy, and kindergarten prep techniques throughout each day.
