What is speech and language therapy?
Speech and language therapy addresses speech and language delays or disorders in children. It supports children in the areas of listening, grammar, social language skills/pragmatics, vocabulary and pre-reading skills.
Speech and language therapist then work on those skills using a variety of techniques that can be generalized outside the therapy room. Each child is assessed upon their needs and strengths and a program is tailored to their individual needs. Contact the BILC for services during school hours, after school services and assessments.
