Speech & Language
Stratford Friends provides its students with the unique opportunity of receiving therapy across academic and social settings. The integration of speech and language services across settings is derived from evidence-based practice and helps the therapist to work more efficiently and effectively with both staff and students. Speech and language support promotes the following:
- Maximization of strategies to support the students and help teachers all day to make a lasting impact
- Generalization from therapy room to classroom and other settings
- Utilization of the building blocks for rapport and community with teachers and students alike
While the speech language pathologist works with students using the “push in” classroom based model many of our students are also seen individually and during small group “pull out” sessions comprised generally of no more than 2-3 students.
