From speech and language assessments and therapy to assistive technologies, coaching, and training, we offer a range of services to help children and adults communicate more effectively.
Communication enables us to connect with others and develop important relationships. To help children and adults with disabilities or communication challenges discover and learn the most efficient means of communication for them, we use strategies that increase the person’s use of speech, body language, and technology.
Sessions are conducted on site at the REACH Communication Therapy and Education Center, unless otherwise noted. Speech and language services and Assistive Technologies may be covered by your insurance policy. Contact your insurance company to understand your coverage.
Here are a few of the services that we provide to our clients and families:
Assessments can include standardized testing, observations, inventories, and a report. Each assessment takes a different amount of time; our goal is to provide you a complete evaluation of your needs.
We provide speech, language, and augmentative communication services. Therapy is with certified staff and is designed to create a more communicative environment and can include:
Sessions last one clinical hour (50 minutes) or one half hour.
Augmentative and Alternate Communication (AAC) and Assistive Technology (AT) evaluations include:
REACH is able to work with high tech communication system vendors to assist in funding your equipment. We also provide AAC/AT support; for example, we teach people how to use their equipment more efficiently.
Coaching, which is provided by trained staff, helps explain a person's communicative needs to his or her support and communication partners. The goal is to help achieve the greatest level of communication possible with the least amount of support. Coaching is conducted at our site or at the client's home.
REACH communication seminars are designed for both small and large group trainings. Topics often include:
Seminars occur at our site in a classroom setting or at your location and typically last three hours or two days, depending on your goals.
Clients can provide a video of themselves and their communication partners for REACH review. Following the review, we'd schedule a one-hour phone consultation and provide a written summary afterward. The cost for digital consultations is determined on an individual basis prior to the service.
