ISLP uses an innovative approach utilizing a wide variety of therapeutic techniques tailored specifically towards each individual's needs. Each session is based on an individual 1:1 with optimal energy and client/clinician involvement.
ISLP takes an integrative approach, using either a whole/partial technique to better serve the individual and their families. This results in an effective, eclectic and an individualized approach that's specific to each individual. Our therapeutic services are enhanced through the use of music, singing, and movement involving the left hemisphere to better serve the individual needs where traditional speech therapy has failed. We offer services in English and Farsi and as well utilize the use of Cued Speech as well as some American Sign Language.
