"I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the services from your company, Lighthouse Therapy, and specifically Tonie S. We feel so blessed to have Tonie as our speech therapist, now for 4 years. She is so professional and is INCREDIBLE at reading cues with our autistic daughter. We have experienced so many wonderful events with Tonie, and it's like we have a friend who is helping our daughter, not just a therapist. "
Imagine a child whose dog has just died and doesn't want to participate in speech therapy that day.
Self-Awareness - The therapist asks, "What is going on with you today?" Helps create self-awareness in the child that there is something different about their behavior.
Self-Management - The therapist could help the child understand the 5-Stages of Grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, which can lead to greater self-management.
Responsible Decision Making - Praising the child for coming to Speech Therapy that day even if they did not want to.
Relationship Skills - If the child doesn’t have the words to describe how they are feeling, then the therapist can work on vocabulary words with the student to help them learn the right adjectives to describe their emotions.
Social Awareness - Provide the student the language to express their feelings, such as being able to say, “I’m okay now. I can still be sad, but I know that this experience is not a permanent state.”
To be clear, our SLP's are not behavioral and mental health counselors. They undergo training to pick up on the social and emotional cues of each child. This training allows them to better support your students. To learn more, please schedule a consultation today.
Our Speech-Language Pathologists handle everything from preparing the IEPs to administering the service. We take care of the entire process, which saves you time and money. Because you won’t have to hire a lot of on-site support staff for your students, all you need is an aid to help get the students in front of a device to receive their services.
You don't have to be stressed or overwhelmed by providing speech and language services. Our team, tools, and services fully support you and your students. Schedule a consultation today!

*We believe that when a school fully meets the needs of a student's IEP, in most cases, this results in each student experiencing better communication skills, practicing responsible decision making, and improved attention skills. However, each student is different, and these are not guaranteed outcomes.
