Amina Grace 1:1 Speech Therapy at GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix

Just before the holidays, our playhouse wrapped up the Fall 2023 Amina Grace 1:1 Speech Therapy session during which 42 students from 7 months – 33 years old played (and worked) for 15 weeks with our therapists, Sarah, Linda & Kristen to improve their communication skills!

Our Spring 2024 Amina Grace session is underway – goals have been set and fun is being had!  All three of our wonderful therapists from the Fall 2023 session returned, and we are once again providing services for 42 students! 

This session we admitted 15 little ones (under 3 years old) to our Amina Grace program. They are the cutest and are working on imitating movement & sounds, learning new sounds/signs/words,  taking turns and exploring toys, bubbles and musical instruments.  

Every week, each of our therapists provides the caregivers  with practical and fun ideas of how to facilitate speech and language development at home, throughout their daily routines. We’re looking forward to another fun and successful Amina Grace session and to growth and progress in the year ahead!
