At Communication Works (CW), we assist the client with SM through a combination of play therapy, behavioral techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), sensory support, pragmatic language therapy, as well as school, parent, and family education and support. We focus on the whole person and incorporate a team approach involving the client, parent/caregiver, school personnel, and other professionals.
Therapeutic support emphasizes building social comfort and progression of communication comfort in various social settings in and out of school. Since anxiety levels change from situation to situation, and often from one person to the next, methods often change from one social situation to another. Therefore, by lowering anxiety, increasing self-esteem, and improving communication and social confidence within a variety of real-world settings, the client suffering in silence will develop necessary coping skills to enable better social, emotional, developmental, and academic functioning. At CW we are experienced and passionate about supporting those with SM and their families.
