structured learning ACTIVITIES to improve communication
At the Seoul Counseling Center, we also have US-Trained Speech and Language professionals to help you or your child overcome speech and language challenges. Our Speech Counselors are trained to treat a variety of diagnoses and communication needs, including articulation and phonology disorders, receptive and expressive language delays/disorders, autism spectrum disorder, stuttering, global developmental delay, social/pragmatic language deficits, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and hearing impairment.
A common approach used is the Milieu system, which is a range of methods that are integrated into a child’s natural environment and during activities that take place throughout the day, rather than only at “counseling time”. These can include Focused Stimulation and Incidental Teaching. We develop activities that provide many structured learning opportunities in a play environment by using the child’s interests and natural motivation.
For older children, we use more curriculum and literacy-based techniques, as children with speech or language delays are often at a higher risk than their peers for difficulties in reading and writing. These provide natural ways to target specific speech and language goals, as well as the intrinsic motivation older children need to improve their communication skills. These skills can be applied to many areas in their lives, both at school and at home, and we enjoy helping children recognize and celebrate their own progress.
We work to ensure that all of these techniques are evidence-based practices, supported by current research, and focus on using rich, naturalistic contexts. These are integral to support a child in learning new skills in a comfortable way, and to promote generalization of new communication skills to improve our clients’ everyday lives.
