Who We Are
Growing Kids Therapy Center is dedicated to teaching non-speaking, minimally speaking and unreliably speaking individuals how to Spell to Communicate (S2C). GKTC has an interdisciplinary team that includes speech language pathology, occupational therapy, and education to meet the needs of our clients with motor and sensory differences. We believe that communication and motor control leads to autonomy, independence and inclusion.
In Our Center
We work in individual sessions to teach the motor skills necessary to spell to communicate. Once communication skills have been acquired, we offer opportunities for clients to work in groups to further develop motor, regulation and fluency with peers. Within individual and group sessions, clients are able to work on purposeful and meaningful motor activities in order to manage their bodies, become more self-controlled and independent.
In Your Community
We believe in the power of community. GKTC professionals are available to serve your community. We offer outreaches, consults, online classes and trainings to suit your community’s needs.
Our Training Programs
Rigorous training is critical to successful implementation of Spelling to Communicate (S2C). We have created the Accessing Community through Spelling (ACTS) training programs to equip professionals, schools, parents or one-on-one communication partners with the skills they need to communicate with nonspeaking individuals.
