Pediatric Language Groups

The Pediatric Language Group Intervention Program provides language stimulation and facilitation with special emphasis on an experiential (hands on) approach for children who are between the ages of two and six years old. The children have cognitive skills necessary for language learning and have been diagnosed with a speech and language delay or disorder. Consultation is available as necessary by occupational and physical therapists. The language groups meet once a week for a one and a half- to two-hour session. There are approximately three to five children per group.

Study skill instruction, which includes instruction on organization of time, material and information. Note taking and researching for report writing is reviewed.
