Apraxia Program

Does your child have difficulty with saying certain words or letters (for example words that have the letter 's' or 'r' or the inability to speak clearly), or maybe they are not speaking at all? 

Your child maybe eligible to join us in our Speech Therapy Summer program,  Literacy-Language Enrichment Apraxia/Articulation Program (L.L.E.A/A.P)© .  This summer program is designed to provide intensive intervention for preschoolers with a diagnosis of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), Phonological Disorders, or Severe to Moderate Articulation Disorders.  The L.L.E.A/A.P program provides a therapeutic approach to the remediation of preschoolers with phonological disorders; mild to moderate language delays; fine motor delays and/or have difficulty with sensory processing.  The summer program will also address the fundamental underlying weakness in pre-reading readiness and prepares the children to meet the academic demands of kindergarten while improving their issues of Apraxia, Articulation Disorders, or Phonological issues.


If you live in a different state or internationally and you would like for your child to participate, please contact us for a scheduling time to perform an eligibility screen with our speech language pathologist, Dr. Amber Rutt-Shepard.
