Speech and Language Therapy

Our licensed Speech and Language Pathologists work with children on evaluation and treatment of communication, feeding, and articulation delays. Interventions are tailored to each individual child with an emphasis on promoting comprehension as well as effective and flexible communication.

We believe that language is best acquired in the context of warm and supportive relationships and through meaningful interactions with others. Therefore, parents and significant others of our child clients are involved in the treatment process and are viewed as partners in the therapeutic effort.

As a parent, please expect to take an active part in your child's speech and language sessions. This will ensure not only more meaningful learning, but also the more effective carryover of the learned language and skills to your child's everyday activities.

Upon need, some sessions may be reserved for parents alone focusing on developmental support and guidance and positive parenting strategies.

Social Skills Groups

Social skills groups provide an additional medium for children to learn and practice social skills, play skills and communication with peers through natural play based interaction with other children. Our social skills groups are typically facilitated by one or two White Tulip clinicians. Children are carefully matched to groups based on their individual needs and therapists are assigned accordingly. Group activities are aimed at supporting children's sensory needs, self-esteem, social skills, problem solving and communication capacities in a natural environment. For some of our groups, a parent support component may also be available.
