Speech and Language

Speech/Language therapy is an integral part of the comprehensive programming offered at The Cove School. Therapy is provided in both individual and group therapy formats and integrated within the student's academic and social curriculum. Students are evaluated using a variety of standardized language protocols, clinical observation and team discussion to help identify their strengths and weaknesses. Speech and language goals are developed by the Speech Pathologist and the student's team of specialists, as a part of the IEP process. To facilitate the transition to post high school opportunities, emphasis is placed on strengthening social communication skills, improving self-advocacy, and developing and using strategies that optimize success in the world-of-work.
