Test and Teach ™ Preschool Program is designed for busy parents and their children whose ages are between 2 and 5 years. We conduct a speech/language evaluation and then design a short-term program to address one or two specific and important areas of speech and/or language skills that we determine will have the most impact upon your child's development. The program is designed to run for 4, 6, or 10 sessions with emphasis on teaching you, the parent/caregiver, strategies that you will be able to utilize at home in those "teachable" moments throughout the day with your child. The sessions will allow for plenty of time for us to model techniques and to have your questions answered. We are available for follow-up phone calls for consultation and follow-up sessions, if necessary.
Test and Teach ™ Student Program is designed for students K-8 and their parents who have busy schedules and/or limited resources which do not allow for months of ongoing therapy. First, we perform a speech/language evaluation and from that we determine the most pertinent areas of language development to be addressed. We then design a short-term program that runs for 4, 6, or 10 sessions, whichever is most appropriate for you and your child. We teach you, the parent/caregiver, strategies that you can use at home to help your child develop speech/language skills most effectively and to help your child with academic work as well.
Test and Teach ™ High School-College Program is designed for busy High School and College students who are wanting to work on specific areas of language development such as report & essay writing, grammar, time management, study skills and presentation skills. We perform a speech/language evaluation and with the student's input design a short-term program that emphasizes learning skills and academic success. The program runs for 4, 6, or 10 sessions depending upon time constraints and needs. We emphasize areas of language and cognition that would most likely have the most educational impact and help achieve the student's learning goals.
CSLL Yoga for younger students incorporates stories, games, imagery, music, movement and meditation to increase your child's ability to sustain attention for longer periods of time. Our experienced Yoga instructor helps young students to release energy in a controlled manner which then leads to "readiness" to develop foundational skills such as attending, following directions, planning and organization.
CSLL Yoga for older students helps to renew energy, build strength and self-esteem. Yoga has been proven to lower stress and reduce anxiety providing your teen with increased confidence so that they approach their social relationships and academics with optimism for success. Yoga can help your older student develop strategies to center and focus better and increase cognitive skills for academic success.
