The Speech Dynamic specializes in social communication and language development. They provide comprehensive assessment and treatment of speech, language, and literacy skills. They are also uniquely qualified to assess more complex areas such as social skills, play skills, and executive functioning skills. Therapy is offered in the child’s natural setting (home or school) and through a variety of play and social groups held at their learning center.
The Speech Dynamic offers classes for early learners that support social skills, language, and literacy development. Preschool Play Groups are for children 3-5 and support typically developing children with language and social skills. Other classes include “Talk and Play” for toddlers with language delays and “Jump Start Groups” for preschoolers learning school readiness skills. This February, TSD is launching a unique class specifically for young children with autism. The class will be led by a Speech-Language Pathologist and Special Education Preschool Teacher. Brooke has specialized training in working with children that are “late talkers” and their families as well as young children with autism.
Social Thinking™ groups are offered for children in preschool through high school with social learning challenges. In the SocialThinking™ program, children learn how to “think about their thinking” to become better social communicators. For students who struggle planning and organizing, cutting edge strategies are taught in Executive Functioning Groups. LEGO-based™ groups are offered for students working on social communication in a fun and motivating way!
Brooke is passionate about helping children with communication and social challenges. She is incredibly excited to bring social learning programs to the community! The Speech Dynamic is located at 2134 and currently serves families in their homes West University and the surrounding areas.
