GROUP LANGUAGE THERAPY
Group language therapy is designed for young children with deficits in language and/or social skills. A group setting allows for peer interaction while given cueing by trained interventionists. Speech language therapists engage and promote joint attention, turn taking, and peer play in a controlled environment. Sessions are twice a week for one and a half hours.
Children at this level may or may not be using words. They may use gestures, signs, actions, or reaching to engage others expressively. Children at this level require assistance following simple directions and routines. These children require more help to attend to more structured tasks such as circle time or simple art time.
Children at this level are attempting more verbal language and often use words, short phrases, or signs to communicate. These children can follow simple 1-2 step directions and can attend during circle time for song play and storybook intervention, as well as playing for longer periods.
Children at this level are verbal and beginning to use longer strands of words to communicate their wants and needs. Specific goals in language development include increasing the length of their utterances, using more complex sentences, focus on correct articulation of sounds and answering questions with more accuracy.
