Speech and language pathologists are licensed health care professionals who support individuals not only in their communicative abilities, but also in the treatment of speech and language disorders, feeding and swallowing difficulties, voice disorders, and social and pragmatic language growth.
Services provided by our highly skilled Liberty POST clinicians include identifying and diagnosing speech and language disorders, providing direct therapy, and collaborating with parents and other possible team members so they may support each child beyond direct speech sessions.
Therapy programs are created specifically for each child and family, based on the child’s strengths, interests, learning styles and areas of need. A child’s progress is consistently monitored to ensure the targets of speech therapy and the strategies implemented change as each child progresses. Strategies may include techniques to develop:
- Breath support
- Oral motor strengthening and awareness
- Feeding and swallowing
- Voice disorders
- Motor planning of speech for those with apraxia
- Expressive language (word use)
- Pragmatic language (social language)
- Receptive language (understanding)
- Fluency concerns and disorders
- Articulation and phonology (the development of speech sounds to improve clarity of speech)
Specific techniques may include visual, verbal, and/or tactile cues to support these areas of development. Our clinicians work with each family to identify which strategies will be most effective for your child and your family.
Our staff includes SLP’s with advanced expertise in many areas and techniques. This includes certified PROMPT therapists, feeding and swallowing experts, augmentative and alternative communication experts, and DIR trained clinicians supporting children on the Autism Spectrum.
Interactive Listening Program
Liberty POST employs a method of treatment called The Listening Program® (TLP). The Listening Program® is a Music-Based Auditory Stimulation™ method that is an affordable, effective approach for enabling individuals with auditory sensory processing and broad ranges of challenges and abilities to achieve even more.
TLP’s clinically-proven approach gently trains the auditory system to accurately process sound. When auditory perception is distorted, auditory processing problems can occur leading to difficulties with the following: attention and concentration, listening, speech and language, sensory integration, self-regulation, motor control, balance and coordination, communication and memory.
The TLP method for training (or re-training) the ear and brain to process sound without distortion, clears the way for better auditory processing, learning, social interactions
