Wondering if your child needs speech therapy?
The Boston Ability Center’s speech and language pathologists have expertise in administering a wide a variety of assessment tools to help you determine your child’s needs. Our SLPs are experienced in evaluating and treating delays in expressive and receptive language, articulation, feeding, and social pragmatics for kids of all ages. Our speech and language therapists use our small treatment rooms as well as the big gym area to keep kids excited about developing language skills they need in order to be successful communicators. Therapists take the opportunity to collaborate with our physical therapists and occupational therapists in order to treat kids as whole people and maximize their functional skills.
Our SLPs also work closely with parents and caregivers to encourage carry over at home. Speech and language therapy at the Boston Ability Center is delivered in one of three ways. The first is 1 to 1 direct treatment in a 45 minute session. The second is in small groups of 2-3 children working together to achieve their social, language goals and/or feeding goals. Lastly, we offer language motor groups that allow children to combine language skills with gross and fine motor skills to reach their goals around communicating with peers in a group of 6-10 kids.
