If you, like most people, thought that speech therapists are professionals only specializing in teaching the accurate production of speech sounds in words, phrases, sentences, and conversations, think again! While articulation therapy is one aspect of speech therapy, that is not the sole role of a speech therapist.
Since learning to hear and produce individual sounds-phonemes are vital components in achieving good phonological, language, and reading skills, these skills are most importantly learned through play and the use of speech therapy products. Adaptive Tech Solutions, a therapist owned company, puts in a great deal of research to offer products that make speech therapy interesting. When someone tells you their child is in speech therapy, there is a good chance the child is receiving more than speech rehabilitation services. The child may be in therapy to address apraxia of speech (incoordination of speech musculature), fluency disorder / stuttering / cluttering, voice disorder, ADHD/ADD, dysphagia (swallowing difficulty), language disorders, etc. The problems and disorders mentioned can have an adverse effect on a child's learning, language, social interaction, and self-perception.
It is oftentimes a challenge to administer speech therapy to children and keep them engaged. Toys can be instrumental in overcoming that challenge. Regardless of the type of diagnosis a child has, it is important to have good communication with parents and an understanding of the interests of the child. Special needs toys at Adaptive Tech Solutions are designed to educate along with entertain. They help the child learn and progress through their challenges in a fun way (and they also make gifts that make them smile).
Adaptive Tech Solutions offers huge inventory of assistive devices to choose from such as limited to battery interrupters, caregiver alerts, computer interfaces, and switches to control switch adapted toys, special needs toys and assortment of inventories of Augmentative Communication Devices as well as other adaptive technologically advanced devices. All these devices, tools, toys and therapy products for children with disabilities are available on their website at very reasonable costs.
