TALK Institute and School is a premier provider of speech and language therapeutic services.
What We Offer
At TALK Institute and School, we offer comprehensive speech, language diagnostic, and therapy services. During our diagnostic sessions, depending upon the individual, we use a complete battery of standardized tests, criterion referenced measures and observations to assess speech and language skills.
Treatment is tailored to each individual's unique needs. During treatment sessions, in addition to traditional language therapy techniques, we may focus on traditional articulation therapy, teaching students to progress from single sounds to sound combinations and all the way up to full sentences and conversation. Therapy is focused on developing motor memory for articulation by incorporating a high level of repetition with parent training for carryover in the home environment.
In both outpatient services and our school program, we utilize integral stimulation therapy, which is the only therapeutic method whose efficacy is supported by empirical data. Integral stimulation therapy is based in cognitive motor learning theory and is mentioned as the only efficacious treatment method for Childhood Apraxia of Speech by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.
All our clinicians hold a masters degree, a Pennsylvania license and the Certificate of Clinical Competency from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Additionally, some of our clinicians have had training in such therapeutic methods as PROMPT and LSVT, as well as training in multisensory language and literacy programs including the Association Method, Wilson Reading Program, Project Read and the Rapid Prompting Method.
