WePlay is a center where speech therapy is provided in a play setting. Play is our first priority in helping children achieve the highest level of communicative independence as possible. Our focus is on increasing expressive language, intelligibility, receptive language, pragmatic language, social interaction, joint attention, play skills, and turn taking. We provide speech therapy in both individual sessions and therapeutic play groups.
Therapeutic play groups provide opportunities for clients to develop communication and social skills in an authentic play environment
led by a speech therapist.
WePlay also encourages parent involvement through parent observations, education and take home exercises.
