At Harmony Pediatric Therapy, we believe every child is full of endless potential and we help foster that potential so he or she may achieve success in all facets of life. Our goal is to enhance children's participation in family, community and school activities — based on his or her age and stage of development.

Our highly skilled speech therapists will work closely with families to establish a treatment plan that will help children with physical, emotional and social development to reach his or her maximum potential.

Responsibilities

Position Summary

Performs comprehensive evaluations, develops and appropriately progresses individualized treatment plans, provides thorough education to s and caregivers in a manner they can understand and plans appropriately for discharge when medical necessity no longer indicates skilled therapeutic care. Participates in departmental initiatives and demonstrates effective communication with all rehab team members to facilitate professional growth and development and overall improvement of clinical performance. Performs other professional duties associated with the care of the client, development of discipline specific therapy services and design of program delivery.

Our experienced speech therapists focus on the following areas:

  • Oral motor skills: which focuses on the strength, coordination and control of the movements in the mouth, jaw, tongue, lips and cheek muscles for eating and speaking.
  • Expressive language development: which is important to successful communication skills such as requesting, protesting, social interaction, labeling and describing, sharing feelings and providing information.
  • Receptive language development: to build active listening skills, sustained attention, ability to follow directions, vocabulary and concept development and an overall understanding of spoken language.
  • Executive dysfunction: which strongly relates to language and learning difficulties. Executive function development helps the child with time management, impulse control, self-regulation and critical thinking skills such as problem solving, organization, planning, sequencing, self-monitoring and mental flexibility.
  • Social skill development: which teaches the unwritten rules for language usage in different situations and with different people including skills like repairing conversational breakdowns, reading non-verbal language, relationship building, socio-emotional awareness and self-advocacy.
  • Self-help: to develop tools and help maintain positive behaviors in all environments (e.g., instead of hitting others or acting out, using positive ways to deal with anger. For instance, a child could ask an adult for help or use an alternative means of expression like writing about feelings).
