Staten Island Speech Therapy Services
Our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) have studied for a minimum of 6 years at the university level, holding a minimum of a Master’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, carrying and/or working toward a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC), and have maintained additional sensory-based and oromyofunctional training across professional fields.
Our SLPs work diligently to keep abreast of the most current professional research and evidence-based practice within our discipline and related disciplines. The SLPs at The Sensory Studio consider the whole child while evaluating and treating speech and language disabilities at our center or in your home.
Speech & Language Screening
Prior to receiving Speech & Language Therapy, an SLP will conduct an informal assessment of present levels of performance and set a specific plan of care. The SLP may utilize articulatory assessments, language-based testing, parent/patient interview, and more. The target of this service is to determine the specific speech and language needs of the patient along with developing and outlining a specific treatment plan.
Speech & Language Comprehensive Evaluation
Therapy may be conducted on a group or individual level, based on and determined by the specific needs of the patient. Therapy may include a table-top activity, sensory play, feeding, improvisation and more. All therapists have access to individualized private therapy rooms, group activity space, as well as our fully equipped sensory gym, Recommendations for academic accommodations and clinically-supportive modalities may be made throughout the course of treatment.
We believe whole-heartedly in the importance of parent involvement. Progression of growth and improvement is always bolstered and advanced by parental cooperation and carryover. We invite families to learn, join in, and play an active role in maximizing their child’s potential.
