Speech and Language Therapy 

Speech and language therapy services are offered onsite by a Speech-Language Pathologist on the High Point Village team. Individual and group sessions are available year round and follow the Cultivate calendar.

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can help a person who has trouble understanding others (receptive language) or sharing their thoughts, ideas, and feelings (expressive language). SLPs can also teach a non speaking individual to use an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system, or improve a person’s ability to organize their thoughts, pay attention, remember, and solve problems.

Communication Enhancement Groups

Communication Enhancement Groups are offered each semester by students and faculty from the Speech-Language Pathology Program at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. 1 hour group sessions offered every Monday.

June 13th – July 25th: ‘Villagers’ Valuable Voices’ – $120 

Villagers will engage in therapeutic goals by using their voices to meet their full potential through socialization, playing games, preparing for the work environment, and communicating with their peers and individuals within the community. The students from the Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center will facilitate this group with supervision from Lisa Gore, Speech-Language Pathologist.

Speech and Language Therapy Process

The Therapy Services Director will conduct a 30 minute consultation with the family in order to get to know them better and identify the client’s strengths and needs. The family and Director will discuss potential areas for growth and will discuss the best fit for therapy. The Director will then send an intake form to the family that is to be completed before services begin. If you would like to set up the consultation please fill out this form.

During the first sessions, the therapist will conduct an assessment with the client to identify specific goals and objectives.
Information from the consultation and the assessment will be used to identify goals and objectives for each client.
Therapy includes interventions that address the identified goals and objectives. The ultimate goal is for generalization of skills outside of therapy.
Ongoing evaluation will be documented through weekly data collection and discussion with parents. Reassessment will also be conducted when appropriate.

During the first sessions, the music therapist will conduct an individual assessment with the client to identify specific goals and objectives. The following domain areas will be assessed during the first session: cognitive, motor, social, communication, behavioral, and emotional.

Information from the consultation and the assessment will be used to identify non-musical goals and objectives for each client based on the needs identified in the domain areas observed.

Therapy includes musical interventions that address non-musical goals and objectives. These may include: instrument play, lyric analysis, song writing, singing, movement to music, improvisation, task analysis, adaptive music lessons. The goal will be generalization of skills outside of therapy.
