Our therapeutic Feeding & Swallowing program is specially designed for children who experience difficulty chewing and/ or swallowing foods or liquids. This program is also very valuable for children who are considered to be “picky eaters” and are only willing to eat a limited variety of foods.
Family training is provided consistently while your child is receiving speech therapy services. Parents learn proven techniques and strategies from their speech therapist which can be utilized to stimulate their children’s speech, language and learning development. Most of these strategies can be easily implemented throughout daily routines and during playtime.
The main goal of Articulation or Speech Therapy with RS Goldring Inc is to help your child produce and shape speech sounds accurately. Children may substitute, add, omit or change various speech sounds or entire speech sound patterns. For example, your child may produce “ouse” instead of “house” or substitute sounds that are made in the back of the mouth (i.e.., “k” and “g” with sounds that are made in the front of the mouth (i.e.., “t” and “d”, “dup” for “cup”. Speech therapy is also an effective way for children and parents to learn strategies to reduce and/or eliminate stuttering.
Our social skills training program enables your child to use their language to better communicate their ideas, needs and emotions in a functional and socially appropriate manner.
Early Childhood Program
Our early childhood program focuses on your child’s early developmental language skills (i.e., play skills, learning shapes and colors, counting and letter recognition). This program builds the foundation for the cultivation of children’s literacy skills.
Reading & Writing Literacy
Our reading and writing literacy services provide school-age children’s basic language skills (i.e.., reading, reading comprehension, and writing skills).
Language is composed of both expressive and receptive language. Therapy for expressive language focuses on your child’s ability to express their thoughts and feelings through communication. Expressive language also includes your child’s vocabulary and use of grammar. In contrast, receptive language refers to your child’s ability to attend to, process, comprehend, retain, or integrate spoken language. Therapy for receptive language skills focus on your child’s ability to understand spoken language and follow directions.
