Continuing education is one of the primary focuses in our clinic and our weekly team meeting is a great place to share our knowledge.

We learned abut new techniques for Apraxia treatment, issues in stuttering, cutting edge assessment materials and the latest research on literacy.
Could your child use a boost in reading/writing/spelling?
Students with reading and or writing challenges need instruction that enables them to make sense of the sound structure of the English language. SPELL- Links systematically teaches students to integrate sounds, letter patterns, and meanings in order to read and spell words (multi-linguistic word study instruction). It explicitly shows them how to transfer this language knowledge to everyday reading and writing (meta-linguistic word study instruction). SPELL-Links is one a variety methodologies Wee Speech can incorporate into treatment. Contact the office for more information.
Summer groups are forming! Wee Speech is offering a variety of literacy based language groups to help your child avoid the summer slide!
