Bilingual Speech-Language Pathologists
Bilingual Speech Therapy Also Offered
For young bilingual children suffering from communication difficulties, the benefits of bilingual pediatric therapy in both English and Spanish cannot be overstated. Here are a few ways that our bilingual speech therapy resources can help clients grow and thrive:
Communication in English and Spanish
Through a combination of aided and unaided communication techniques, our clients gain skills and learn to express themselves clearly and effectively. Speech therapy, after all, is about language. It’s not just speaking; it’s about communicating and expressing ideas to others.
Enhance and Maintain Social Skills
Good health begins with good social skills. And social skills are closely related to language skills. Our bilingual speech therapists employ modeling, role playing, and other techniques to teach good social skills and show clients how to adapt to dynamic social situations in multiple languages.
Practice Nonverbal Communication
No matter what language you speak, over half of face-to-face human communication is done non-verbally. Facial expressions, body language, etc. often say more than words. That’s why our speech therapy services aim to develop ‘total’ communication skills wherein the body and voice work together to communicate effectively.
