SOCIAL BUTTERFLY SPEECH THERAPY
OUR UNIQUE PRACTICE
Social Butterly is unique for a variety of reasons. To begin, we work with children and adults to address a variety of communication concerns and improve our client's lives. We are proud to specialize in a select group of communication disorders. Our experienced and knowledgeable clinicians have advanced training and specialize in the following areas:
Adult and pediatric stuttering
Communication challenges associated with autism spectrum disorder
Speech and language delays and disorders associated with developmental delays
Feeding and swallowing difficulties and challenged ("picky") eaters
SCRIPTING (DELAYED ECHOLALIA)
Does your child echo or script to communicate? Do they repeat questions, books or movies, but have a hard time producing spontaneous utterances? Have you tried different therapies and techniques but don't see improvement? PLEASE check out Natural Language Acquisition. If this sounds like your child and you are curious to hear about using this approach, contact us!
OUR SOCIAL SKILLS GROUPS
Our social language groups target all areas of communication that affect socializing and friendship. Special focus is given to game play, conversation skills (initiating, maintaining a topic, asking questions and making comments) and nonverbal language (eye contact, body language, gestures). New groups form regularly. Call today to set up an evalution to see if your child might benefit from one of our groups.
