SERVICES

Therapy is tailored to each child’s unique needs, which can be individual therapy or social skills group therapy or both. Our therapists design therapy based on their evaluation for difficulties or disorders. Common problems include, but are not limited to, receptive and expressive language delay, Autism, apraxia, stuttering, and voice disorders. We specialize in social skills group therapy for Asperger's and high functioning Autism. As part of therapy, we often have a child with normal social skills development participate and act as a model for the group. If you want more details or would like to speak to a therapist, please call us at (714) 528-4405 or e-mail us at thao@soundssmart.com.

Individual Speech & Language Therapy

A therapist works one-on-one with your child to develop his or her skills. Each session is normally one hour with 50 minutes of therapy and 10 minutes of parent consultation. The number of sessions per week will depend on your child’s needs.

Social Skills Group Therapy

What is a Social Skills Group? (download flyer .PDF)

It is a group of kids of similar ages interacting under the direction of a speech–language pathologist for the purpose of developing social-language skills & concepts of peer relations. We have social groups for kids of different ages & although the number of kids in a group varies, we limit our groups to 4 kids to maximize the benefits.

Who would benefit from participating in our social groups?

Our social groups are designed for kids having difficulties communicating & playing with their peers. Although such difficulties are commonly associated with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome, social groups can significantly improve the social skills of kids without such diagnoses.

What will kids do in social groups?

Some fun activities include role-playing in hypothetical social situations, playing games to stimulate social thinking & taking trips to places such as parks to meet other kids & apply their skills in real situations.

What are the benefits of Social Skills Groups?

Kids learn to make conversations, listen, understand different intonations, read body language such as facial expressions & gestures, focus & stay on topic, share, & more. The goal is to teach kids to play and socialize with their peers and make friends.
