Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-Language therapy at BYS focuses on expanding the child’s communication skills in the areas of speech production (articulation), understanding of language (receptive language), verbal language (expressive language) and social use of language (pragmatics).

Our speech-language pathologists specialize in treating individuals with autism and use their expertise to utilize a variety of research-based methods and materials to create individualized therapy programs unique to the individual’s needs.

Our Speech-Language Pathologists offer services to individuals in a one on one basis. It is our goal to build a variety of communication skills that can be generalized into the naturalistic environments.
