Speech and Language Services
The Joy School offers private and group speech and language therapy.
Speech and language services are offered to students in pre-k through eighth grade. Individual and group therapy sessions are available to current and prospective students, as well as students from other schools. Therapy sessions are provided by current TJS Speech-Language Pathologists, and are designed to meet the needs of children with speech, language and social pragmatic delays. The focus of each therapy session will vary based on the needs of the kids.
Speech & Language Therapy may be helpful if:
- You have difficulty understanding what your child says. Their speech sounds are unclear (difficulty with speech articulation).
- Your child has difficulty following directions, understanding stories or conversations, understanding vocabulary, or answering comprehension or social questions (difficulty with receptive language skills).
- Your child has difficulty expressing his or her wants and needs, using correct grammar, summarizing information, conveying her or his point or uses words like “that,” “some,” “it,” or “stuff” instead of specific vocabulary (difficulty with expressive language skills).
- Your child has difficulty with time management, organizing, planning for future events, sequencing stories, or transitioning between tasks (difficulty with executive function skills).
Therapy is billed at $115/hour.
