I remember the utter confusion that surrounded the diagnosis of our twin sons when it became evident that they were not talking. Autism spectrum disorder, pervasive development disorder, deafness, language disorder, sensory integration disorder, global dyspraxia among other terms were being used with little understanding of their meaning. As we struggled to comprehend these diagnoses and what was truly going on with our son’s, we equally had to make sense of what therapies were available to help our children succeed with communication.
It was this quest that ultimately brought us to San Francisco and our collaboration with Disney.
For this reason we have created this new section on our website which we hope will help explain many of the terms that surround speech and language difficulties and the various classical treatments available. In this section you will see information on autism and its related conditions, speech therapy, speech and language pathology, sensory integration therapy together with more recent information relating to visual learning strategies and Disney.
We hope you find this section helpful and we will be continuously updating it.
