Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)
We offer assessment and ongoing therapy for individuals who can benefit from both low and high tech augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. In addition, we have access to assistive technology that can be used for reading and writing. Our therapists work closely with families to determine the most effective methods to assist the child’s communication.
Habla bien su hijo? La gente le entiende cuando habla? El nino comprende lo que le dicen los demas? Ofrecemos evaluaciones y terapia en espanol para problemas del habla y para mejorar la comunicacion y la comprension. La consulta inicial es gratis.
We offer a variety of speech and language services in Spanish, including therapy for speech sound errors, language comprehension, expression, and social skills. As always, our initial consult is free. In addition, bilingual speech-language evaluations are available to individuals and school districts.
Receptive/Expressive Language Difficulties
Language skills are the foundation of school success and effective self-expression. A strong vocabulary, the ability to understand what’s being said and to follow directions, and positive interactions are the basis for academic and social growth. We treat the language skills that affect a wide range of concerns, including autism, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, auditory processing, and language delays/disorders.

Is your child’s speech hard to understand? Do people often say “What?” or ask him to repeat himself? Speech disorders can look like sound errors, “baby talk,” or even silence, and they can be enormously frustrating for your child and your family. Prairie Wind provides free initial consults to help determine if your child would benefit from therapy. Full evaluations are available, as well as therapy for articulation, phonology, and apraxia of speech.
Home School Resource
When you are homeschooling, it can be hard to recognize whether or not you should be concerned about your child’s speech and language skills. Prairie Wind provides free initial consults to assist you in discovering what your child’s needs and required services may be. In addition, we provide speech-language evaluations and therapy, and we can connect you with other providers and services within the community.
Are you concerned because your toddler isn’t talking? Can you count the number of words your 2-year-old understands? If the answer is yes, your child may be a late talker. When children under the age of three have language delays, communication at home often looks a lot like pointing and grunting. Our therapists have many years of experience understanding and working with toddlers and families. We believe parents and caregivers are an integral part of the therapy process, and we welcome the chance to work with you.
