Language to Literacy Class:

Programs available to students 6 - 18 years of age who have language/literacy deficits. The program is not tutoring, but rather a language intervention aimed at attacking the root cause of the deficit.  We believe the following foundational skills are critical to successful reading and achievement in and outside of the classroom for all students:

  1. Auditory Processing - what you do with what you hear
  2. Phonological Awareness -hearing, identifying and manipulating words, syllables, sounds and rhyme that comprise the spoken language
  3. Print Knowledge/Phonics – understanding conventions of print and the letters and spellings which represent sounds in written language
  4. Receptive and Expressive Language -understanding and using vocabulary, grammar and concepts

Social Communication Class:

The program is available to students ages 5 through high school who have social communication deficits. We believe the following areas are critical for students to develop successful social communication skills:

  • Conversational Skills: Using language to take part in reciprocal and meaningful exchanges (e.g. engagement, topic maintenance, topic initiation, turn-taking, listening, etc.)
  • Self-Regulation Skills: Managing one's own feelings and/or sensory, motor planning, and visual-spatial issues
  • Cooperation Skills: Problem-solving, compromising, and understanding others' perspectives to establish and maintain relationships
  • Generalization Skills: To communicate effectively across social situations and to adjust social behaviors to meet the listener's needs and environmental conditions
