Language Skills Group Therapy

Children with learning disabilities, language disorders, reading disorders and reading comprehension difficulties benefit from explicit instruction on the structure of stories through story retelling and generation tasks. Improving these skills has been shown to improve academic performance in the areas of oral language, reading comprehension and writing.

Following an evaluation of your child’s language skills, students will participate in instruction in groups of no more than three children. The sessions will improve understanding of story components and the ability to create complex and grammatical sentences. There will be two groups that from which you can choose to participate.

Group 1: Mondays and Wednesdays 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Group 2: Tuesdays and Thursdays 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The sessions will be under the supervision of faculty in the Division of Communication Sciences and Disorders with expertise in school-age language and literacy disorders.

These language skills groups are a Rite Care clinic funded opportunity provided at no cost for those in need of language and/or reading instruction.
