Say & Play

Speech/OT Play Group

What is Say & Play?

Say & Play is run by an occupational therapist AND a speech-language pathologist who collaborate to address individual goals within the context of a group. Children will develop expressive, receptive, and pragmatic (social) language while participating in play-based activities. Say & Play addresses gross motor, fine motor, self-help (dressing, eating, etc.) skills as well as sensory processing abilities.

Our child-first, expert services utilize established practices to focus on:

  • Autism
  • Hemiplegia
  • Everyday Kids (School, Sensory, and the In-Between)

And we do it all so that each child can reach their fullest potential!

Who Would Benefit?

Children who exhibit the following:

  • Sensory dysfunction
  • Low muscle tone
  • Motor planning problem
  • Receptive language delays
  • Motor speech disorders (apraxia, dysarthria)
  • Difficulty communicating needs, wants and ideas
  • Difficulty socializing/poor awareness of others
  • Picky eating behavior
  • Underdeveloped play skills

Say & Play Group Options

Prior to enrollment, an on-site visit will be scheduled with you and your child to determine the best placement based on their age and skill sets.

Parents are interviewed prior to the program to gather up-to-date information about your child. We use an assessment tool that helps establish and prioritize the child’s functional goals and truly creates a system for the parents to be involved in the process. We welcome information from other therapists, schools, doctors, etc. in order to maximize the therapeutic experience.

We often have the following age groups available throughout the school year:

  • 0 to 2+ years old
  • 3 to 4+ years old
  • 5 to 6+ years old

Why Say & Play?

At Intensive Therapeutics, we value a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach. We offer sessions incorporating both occupational and speech therapy. This allows us to look at the child as a whole within the context of various settings.

Additionally, we communicate with all members of the child’s team:

  • Parents/caregivers
  • Therapists from other disciplines
  • School therapists
  • Teachers/school districts
  • Doctors and other medical professionals
