We accept, value and empower all neurotypes.
Neurodiversity is a term that comes from the neurodiversity movement, which began in the 1990s. It encompasses the idea that all individuals learn, think, interact and communicate in a variety of ways, none of which are considered more superior to the other. Based on this model, differences in any of these areas are not considered deficits.
We whole-heartedly support and accept differences and we empower families to do the same.
We focus on what your child can do and build from there!
The language we use to describe children matters! When working with children and families, we do not discuss "deficits" or "weaknesses". We use developmental norms as a guideline (not a be all end all), along with your child and family's unique values, culture and experiences to set individualized goals that matter most to you! We incorporate your child's interests in sessions, and let their passions lead the way!
Child-Led & Play-Based
We let your child's interests lead the way!
Children learn best through play. We never seek to change your child's play skills or interests. All play is valid and necessary for learning in childhood. We know that children learn best when they can talk about and engage with the things they love most. It is our mission to support children to use their passions to build meaningful connections with like-minded peers. We do not use play norms.
We include families every step of the way.
We believe that the active involvement of parents and caregivers in their child's speech therapy sessions is integral to their child's ongoing growth and success.
As a parent, you should always feel informed about your child's goals and progress.
