What is the Amina Grace speech and language program

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.

Some of the benefits of this program are:

  • Increase self-confidence through positive reinforcement and various forms of appropriate supportive methods, including: verbal, visual and tactile.
  • Improve school and social readiness through activities and goals geared towards preparing participants for skills required within their age-leveled school grade, thereby, increasing their chances of improving social skills of blending with classmates.
  • Increase independence and overall quality of life through confidence-building activities, self-help skills and a positive-reinforcing approach to therapeutic targets.

“Gigi’s San Diego Speech and Language has proved to be very positive for Matthan’s progress to develop speech skills.  For starters, the curriculum was presented in a very lively, fun, engaging, and interactive way which made it effective in keeping our 6 year-old highly engaged via Zoom.” Says Viviana C., Matthan’s mom.
