Speech Therapy Groups and Programs Available at Unified Therapy Services:
Oralfacial Myofunctional Therapy
Using this type of therapy involves an individualized regimen of therapeutic oral and facial muscle exercises to develop correct chewing and swallowing patterns, as well as tongue and lip resting postures. Our SLP can also provide motivational therapy to eliminate harmful oral habits such as: prolonged pacifier, thumb or finger sucking, fingernail, cheek or lip biting, and thumb sucking.
An individual being able to express his or her thoughts and feelings is a very critical part of well-being. Augmentative communication provides a system by which individuals who are not able to express them verbally can do so. Our Speech Language Pathologists assess and assist each patient with alternative communication as needed. This ranges from simple picture exchange systems (PECS) all the way to working with vendors for high-tech communication devices. We have devices available in our clinic to trial within the clinic and opportunities for the patients to take home a device for four weeks to be used in natural environments.
