SIGN IN

The LWT goal is to improve your child’s communication skills to reduce frustration, improve social interaction and support academic and social growth as they develop.

HOW WE WORK

Address parental, teacher or pediatrician concerns through a thorough evaluation/screening to best fit your child’s needs. Evaluations consist of a combination of parent interviews, informal observation, and standardized testing. Receive a written report addressing your child’s abilities, communicative strengths and weaknesses, and a recommendation for services if speech/language therapy is warranted. Goals for therapy along with parent/caregiver strategies will be provided to begin the process of team collaboration to target your child’s specific communicative needs.

We start with an Evaluation

All speech/language therapy sesssions are individualized to meet your child’s specific communication goals and interests. Certified LWT speech-language pathiologists use evidence based strategies and varying techniques that work best for your child. Sessions include parent training as well as collaboration with other individuals on your child’s team (teachers, other professional services, caregivers,etc). Sessions typically begin at 30 minutes with the flexibility to increase duration as ddeemed appropriate by the clinician. 

Individualed Instruction

Our team incorporates a variety of skills, areas of specialty and formal trainings in specific evidenced based programs such as Sounds in Motion, PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets), The Social Thinking Curriculum, Wilson Language: Fundations, The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol, PECS (picture exchange communication system) and TalkTools® hierarchy and more

Apply Expertise

Clinicians will wear a clear mask or face shield if preferred by the parent. However, at this time clinicians will conduct sessions without a mask and in person if preferred by the parent. Virtual sessions are available as substitutes if necessary due to Covid exposures or diagnosis.

Staying Safe

Benefits for your little one

Connect with your child through language and learning while learning tips to implement at home

I attribute Sloane’s early language development to LWT classes and the tools they provide to me to encourage, nurture and foster Sloane’s growth. LWT is everything a parent could ask for packed into 1 class. It’s progressive yet familiar. It’s relaxed yet structured. It’s fun yet educational. It’s my “can’t do without” class recommendation for babies and toddlers alike.
