The speech-language therapy program at MCC focuses on expanding our students’ communication abilities through the development of receptive, expressive, and pragmatic language skills. Our speech-language pathologists utilize all forms of communication with their students, including nonverbal language, verbal language, and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). The therapists provide speech-language services to their students in a variety of settings, such as individual, dyad and/or group sessions with 1:1/2:1 instruction and lunch consultation. Speech sessions may focus on increasing vocabulary skills and concept development, as well as expanding social communication and play skills. MCC follows a transdisciplinary model through which a variety of disciplines, including ABA, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and music therapy, collaborate with one another to ensure that our students reach their full potential.
