Speech Therapy, Sign Language and Reading
Developing communication skills is important. At SMSC a licensed speech/language pathologist assesses individual speech and language abilities and provides instruction and activities in small group settings. SMSC is proud to offer these distinct program components:
- Visi-Pitch II computer and specialized software for assigning and treating speech and voice disorders.
- Speech Intelligibility focus for individuals who need help initiating conversations and improving language skills.
- Pragmatic Aspect focus on social skills and interaction in small groups.
Informal sign language refresher classes are also conducted frequently to enable students to better communicate with each other.
Also held regularly are informal refresher reading classes, which are taught by a credentialed instructor.
