The SuperSpeech & Language Connection
At the SuperSpeech & Language Connection, we have found that the Speech/Language and Occupational Therapy co-treatment method is much more efficient and effective than an individual therapeutic model. It is specifically designed for children who have needs in the areas speech, language, social/pragmatics and occupational therapy. In addition, this co-treatment model adds to the fun of the therapy session and helps to avoid the therapy "burn-out" that can happen from having busy schedules.
