How is Speech Therapy Incorporated into the Day?
Speech Therapy at Blue Bird Day produces better results because of the intensity and frequency of therapy incorporated into the therapeutic rotation and individual services. Speech-Language Pathologists lead group therapy sessions in both therapeutic preschool and kindergarten level programs. As part of each child’s therapeutic rotation, they will encounter peer interactions, socialization, and individual skill building. Therapists address all language, articulation, and cognitive challenges each child may have in order to facilitate change. They even get messy with the kids at lunch time and help them explore new foods and how to eat them. Therapists incorporate play to work on oral motor skills, such as moving your lips, tongue, or jaw in a specific way. In addition to the therapeutic day, Speech-Language Pathologists spend time with families to discuss goals and provide parent coaching.
