About Speech Therapy

Speech-Language Therapy provides each client with the tools necessary to engage in meaningful communication to the best of their ability. Therapy often focuses on the client’s ability to produce speech sounds correctly and fluently as well as mastering the ability to understand others. Speech therapists also help clients practice communicating in social situations by helping them organize their thoughts during conversation and learn how to utilize necessary problem-solving skills during interactions with others. In some cases, the speech therapist may provide and train clients and their caregivers in the use of augmentative and alternative communication devices

  • Treatment Modality: Meaningful Day Services is dedicated to providing quality Speech-Language Therapy services to children and adolescents. Our goal is to improve the speech and language skills of an individual; help determine the need for any augmentative or assistive communication device; and/or teach manual and gesture-based forms of communication, depending on the client's needs. The goal of MDS speech-language services is that each client be provided with and trained in optimal methods to communicate in an effective manner with the people in their family and community.
