The Clinic on Heritage
We are proud to offer a waiting room, playroom, four speech therapy rooms, an occupational therapy gym, family bathroom and hi-tech observation room in our clinic space.
Our rainbow playroom is a great place to observe children interacting with toys and peers prior to or following a speech therapy session. It's also a nice area for siblings of speech clients to wait while brother or sister is working in the speech room. Parents can join in on the fun or observe the play from a large window in the waiting room.
Complete with comfy chairs, magazines, cable TV, wifi password and USB outlets, our waiting area is the perfect place to pass the time during speech therapy sessions. You can observe your children playing in the playroom from the waiting room if you choose not to take advantage of our observation room. (See below for more info)
We tried to provide all the creature comforts you might need in our family accessible bathroom. A plush changing table, baby wipes and baggies are provided for your convenience. We also have step stools and a potty seat for our toilet training kiddos. Come on in and "potty like a rock star!"
AGB Speech Therapy Treatment Room
This is where the magic happens! Ashley's treatment room is designed for littles, toddlers, preschoolers and older clients. We can work on fluency as we sit on the fuzzy red carpet, use the blue table while we learn language skills or concentrate on speech sounds at the white table. Mirrors are strategically placed for articulation therapy, and toys and games are accessible for friends to choose and share. Come on in... we'll learn, grow and talk!
Our hi-tech observation room offers parents an insider's view to the happenings in the therapy room. Progress in speech therapy is dependent on a team approach with loads of practice at home. Use our cameras to watch methods and prompts used by the SLP to reinforce skills at home. Listen in on your child's productions and hold them to the same standards when they practice and you'll see their skills grow along with thier conficence.
