Communication therapy builds upon the child’s interests so that it is meaningful and engaging. Students are active participants in therapy; they are invested in their own progress. Multi-sensory supports such as visual schedules, videos, and written prompts are used to accommodate different learning styles. Literacy development is an important part of therapy because students with oral language issues often need help with reading and writing. Anna uses the Wilson Reading program.
