Conversational and Augmentative Therapy California

Communication is an essential part of daily life. However, many people struggle with speech and language issues that make it difficult for them to communicate effectively. Conditions like autism, cerebral palsy, stroke, head injuries, and developmental delays can impair a person’s ability to speak clearly or engage in conversations. Fortunately, speech therapy services are available to help. Two therapies that are particularly useful are augmentative therapy California and conversational therapy.

Augmentative Therapy in California

Augmentative communication therapy involves supporting or enhancing speech and interaction abilities. It utilizes various aids and tools to help people better express themselves when natural speech alone is insufficient. These therapies can benefit both children and adults who have complex communication needs.

In augmentative therapy sessions, California speech therapists incorporate communication boards, voice output devices, sign language, picture symbols, speech-generating devices, and more. These tools give those struggling with speech a way to compensate and get their message across more successfully. Augmentative therapy also focuses on building the underlying speech and language capabilities to whatever degree possible.

Our augmentative therapy programs are customized to each client and their needs. We access the latest technology and best practices to help our clients achieve their communication goals. Whether someone has cerebral palsy, a developmental delay, suffered brain damage, or has another condition that makes speech difficult, augmentative therapy California can often provide assistance.

Conversational Therapy California

Beyond speech itself, conversing with others requires additional skills. Conversational therapy helps those who struggle with the back-and-forth flow of dialogue whether due to social challenges, cognitive impairments, hearing issues, or for other reasons.

Conversational therapy services use conversational therapy techniques to improve communication exchanges by focusing on:

  • Taking turns talking and listening 
  • Maintaining topic relevance
  • Asking and answering questions
  • Repairing conversation breakdowns
  • Understanding figures of speech like sarcasm
  • Interpreting body language and facial cues 
  • Modulating volume, intonation and pace

Such functional, practical conversation skills allow for better discussion, relationships, learning, self-expression and more. Conversational therapy gives clients strategies for conversing more naturally in everyday situations.

Our conversational therapy programs are individualized to make clients comfortable while expanding their abilities. We help both youth and adults become more at ease interacting with others conversationally.

Grammar Therapy in California

Proper grammar is vital for conveying ideas clearly. Grammar therapy focuses on building this understanding in both oral and written language.

For those struggling with grammar rules, grammar therapist California provides activities, models and feedback to help improve:

  • Sentence construction 
  • Parts of speech usage
  • Pluralization and tense
  • Word order
  • Pronoun usage
  • Punctuation
