Check out this adorable pic from our Amina Grace Speech program! Andrei had all these wonderful instructors last night and was clearly enjoying himself — look at that adorable smile!! Andrei is learning to attend to his therapists, make eye contact, repeat sounds, build his core muscles so that he can learn to use these muscles and make the sounds that are needed to produce verbal sounds and expressive language.
The Milwaukee program was created in collaboration with Marquette University’s Speech Pathology and Audiology Department. Specific session times will be assigned after registration. Here in Milwaukee, participants, ages 6 months-18 years, work toward improving communication skills.
The GiGi’s Playhouse 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.
- Increase clarity of speech and enunciation through a hierarchal approach of repeated exposure and practice of target sounds, focusing on accurate placement of oral articulators.
- Improve word order and message meaning through focused exercises targeting various parts of speech, including: verb tense, word choice, sentence completion and more.
- Increase comprehension through the use of various visual models and tasks targeting functional level-appropriate targets.
