Toddler Group (18-36 months)

The toddler language playgroup is a fun play-based group for children between the ages of 18 months to 3 years with or without speech language delays. The toddler language playgroup is designed with a schedule of activities and transitions to facilitate the child's communication, language, articulation, learning, motor and social emotional skills, and overall development. Activities may include singing, musical instruments, art, sensory play, story time, snack, and outdoor play. Speech language pathology graduate students provide therapy under supervision of a certified speech language pathologist (SLP). Senior undergraduate speech pathology assistant students also have opportunities to learn and assist in the group.

Preschool Services (3-5 years)

Speech and Language services to support language, articulation, and phonological disorders are offered for one and a half hours during the fall and spring semesters. This group targets preschool children who have been identified as having moderate to severe speech acquisition disorders. PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) is used as an intervention technique as well as other appropriate interventions. This is an integrative approach that focuses on speech and receptive and expressive language development, and pre-literacy skills. The supervising speech-language pathologist is PROMPT-trained and will be working with graduate student clinicians to provide these services.
