Communication Station is dedicated to providing quality speech-language therapy and special education services to children ages birth to 3 with a family centered approach. Families are involved in every step of their child’s early intervention program to learn how they can best help their child reach their fullest potential. Family members are in integral part of the program as they are taught strategies and techniques to incorporate into their son or daughter’s daily routine.
According to research, learning and development are at their highest rate in the preschool years. Some children, due to conditions noticed at birth, special needs, or developmental delays which occur in the early years, risk missing some of the most important learning and developmental milestones. Early intervention helps keep these children on a path to making the most of abilities and skills developed during the early years.
