Speech-language therapy at MCC  focuses on expanding our students’ communication abilities through the development of receptive, expressive and pragmatic language skills. The speech-language pathologists utilize all forms of communication with their students, such as nonverbal language, verbal language and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). The therapists provide speech-language services in a variety of settings, including individual, dyad and/or group sessions with 1:1/2:1 instruction, as well consult in the classroom during lunch. The speech-language pathologists work collaboratively with other disciplines, including ABA, occupational therapy, and music therapy to ensure generalization of skills and that students reach their full potential.

Speech & Language Therapy

All speech-language pathologists at MCC hold master’s degrees, are certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Associations and are New York State licensed. In addition, the therapists have completed a minimum of LEVEL 1 PROMPT training.
