Individualized therapy for all communication disorders.
Lizzie's mission is to empower her clients to communicate effectively across all environments, both social and academic. She specializes in social communication disorders. Children who experience speech, language , or social communication disorders may feel frustration at home and in school. They may tantrum because they do not have the vocabulary to express their needs. They may have difficulty reading and writing, making and maintaining friendships, and interacting peacefully with family members. Through speech with Lizzie, children learn to communicate effectively, feel successful in a variety of social situations, and overcome challenges they may face across all settings. Lizzie provides nurturing, holistic therapy that helps children reach their full potential. She creates a fun, engaging environment in which children love to learn.
Lizzie provides treatment for all communication-based disorders, including:
Receptive language (listening, answering questions, following directions)
Expressive language (late talkers, expressing needs, asking questions, telling stories, etc.)
Articulation & phonology disorders and Apraxia (PROMPT Therapy)
Social-Pragmatic language (conversation skills, attention, problem solving, etc.)
Language-based learning disabilities (reading, writing, spelling, etc.)
In order to facilitate carry-over of skills to all environments, Lizzie provides parents and other caregivers extensive summaries at the end of each therapy session. These summaries include descriptions of skills targeted, therapy activities, and strategies for carry-over at home and in school. For small children, she encourages parents to be involved in the sessions so they may learn how to communicate in a way that creates lasting success.
