Child led program to encourage natural play using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). This is a group for children who use communication devices to have a chance to simply be themselves while encouraging functional language. Some structure including songs and books are incorporated into the session. Parents stay for the program to learn everyday tips for incorporating functional speech into your child's day using their dedicated voice.
Program led by certified speech language pathologists specialized in AAC. Field trips will occur some weeks to integrate kids who use AAC into the community.
*Please note that your child should be able to tolerate a group setting, including sitting for brief activities of play and books. Individual therapy is available for children who are not ready for this step.
Mondays from 4-5:30 pm at our East Peoria Clinic.
June 10 - July 15, 2019.
Need-based grants may be available.
