the amina grace speech and language program
The Amina Grace Speech and Language Program came to be by the generous donation of Munuawar Ali and Maura Cullen in honor of their daughter Amina and is led by our full-time speech-language pathologist, Sarah Buti, M.S., CCC-SLP.
The Amina Grace Speech and Language Program provides youth, teens and adults with greatly expanded opportunities to evolve and refine their speech and language skills. Effective enunciation, clarity of speech, word order and message meaning are paramount to fostering greater self-confidence, comprehension, problem-solving, school readiness, social skills, independence, and overall quality of life.
Since its inception in the summer of 2015, the Amina Grace Speech and Language Program has serviced over 30 different families in the Hoffman Estates Playhouse. The Amina Grace Speech and Language Program is open to participants of ALL AGES and runs 4, 12-week sessions throughout the year. Session times vary from 30 to 45 minutes each week.
New participants are evaluated utilizing formal and informal measures and receive treatment catered to their specific needs. Even better, this program, like all others at GiGi’s Playhouse, is provided completely free of charge to all of our families involved!
Goals of Program:
The Amina Grace Speech and Language Program goals include: increasing clarity of speech and enunciation, improving word order and message meaning, increasing self-confidence, increasing comprehension, improving school readiness and social skills and increasing independence and overall quality of life.
