Princeton Speech-Language and Learning Center helps children and adults of all ages develop critical speech, language, and feeding skills. We believe “one size fits all” approaches do not work, so we tailor our therapies to maximize each individual’s strengths and overcome his/her challenges. The skilled therapists at PSLLC are trained or certified in the following specialized treatments and methods. Many of the methods are useful for a variety of disorders and may be used in combination.
We are always adding cutting edge treatments. Below is a list of some of the treatment methods at our center:
Auditory Processing Management
Children with auditory processing disorders (APDs) have problems understanding spoken language even though they do not suffer from hearing loss. They may have particular difficulty when a speaker uses complex or lengthy language, speaks rapidly, or is surrounded by lots of background noise.
Cogmed Working Memory Training is an computer-based program for helping children, adolescents and adults improve working memory and sustaining focus and attention.
Executive Function Treatment
The skills, known collectively as executive function, help us with everything from getting dressed in the morning to writing a letter. While these skills come naturally for most of us, some children need to be taught how to execute tasks in an expected manner.
A research-based series of game-like computer exercises designed to help elementary, middle and high school students develop and strengthen memory and sequencing skills, attention, auditory processing speed, and the language skills essential for learning and reading success.
Kaufman Method for Childhood Apraxia
The Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Technique helps teach children with apraxia of speech the easiest way of saying words until they have increased motor-speech coordination.
The LiPS® program (formerly known as Auditory Discrimination in Depth) provides theory and methodology for successfully developing phonemic awareness. In particular, LIPS® teaches children to identify sounds from the feedback from their lip, tongue, and jaw positions in order to help them discriminate sounds.
PROMPT is a dynamic tactile method of treatment for motor speech disorders that is based on touch pressure, kinesthetic and proprioceptive cues.
A motivating software program that uses the latest in speech recognition technology to help students strengthen their reading fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension toward becoming proficient, life-long readers. This program is appropriate for students ages 7 and up, who struggle with reading fluency.
Social Thinking® Groups
Social Thinking® Groups teach skills ranging from perspective-taking, which is understanding that others have "thoughts" separate from our own, to interpreting and responding to the nuances of verbal and non-verbal communication. Groups are geared for students with average to above-average IQ who have social cognitive deficits as a result of High Functioning Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD, NLD, PDD-NOS, or related diagnoses. The groups are geared toward students starting Kindergarten, and as they progress in school, they gradually move on to more complex social thinking topics depending on their maturity and interest level.
Story Grammar Marker®
The goal of the Story Grammar Marker® program is to help children learn this organizational framework in order to help them understand and process what they say, hear, read, or write. The program uses a series of colorful, fun manipulatives and a set of five core books in which to master the organizational framework. After mastery of these five core books, the skills learned in the program can be easily implemented in other books and into conversational storytelling.
Visualizing & Verbalizing®
Nanci Bell has identified visualization as a primary factor basic to language comprehension and critical thinking. Language comprehension is the ability to recall facts, get the main idea, make an inference, draw a conclusion, predict/extend, and evaluate, as well as to reason from language that is heard and language that is read. This results in significant improvement in reading comprehension, oral language comprehension, oral and written language expression, and critical thinking.
Zones of Regulation®
This curriculum includes learning activities to help students in preschool through college who struggle with emotional regulation, including anger management, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, flexibility, impulsivity, and/or self-control.
