Teletherapy Services

Work schedules and after-school activities can make it hard to find time for in office appointments. Yet consistent therapy is important for your child’s success. That’s why Prairie Wind offers teletherapy services. Call today to inquire.

Flexible Scheduling

Family schedules often change from month to month. We work with you to accommodate your busy lifestyle. At Prairie Wind you are not locked in to a rigid schedule and we will work with your schedule to arrange appointments or provide therapy in your child’s school or daycare.

Our Services

Late Talkers

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.


Does your child struggle with one or more of the following:

• Reading fluency

• Sounding out words

• Reading comprehension

• Telling a story

• Following spoken directions

• Understanding math concepts

Laura Stevens can offer individualized intensive reading therapy for children who are struggling to read. A cost-free consult will be provided prior to the program to discuss details and determine the type of intervention recommended for your child. Parent/ care provider involvement is required


Is your child’s speech hard to understand? Do people often say “What?” or ask him to repeat himself? Does your child stutter? We can help your child communicate more effectively. Full evaluations are available, as well as therapy for articulation, phonology, apraxia of speech and stuttering.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Our experienced therapists work with you and your child to develop social interaction skills. We use motivating activities to teach turn-taking, conversation, play and thinking about others. We draw upon research-based interventions to support our therapy techniques.

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. Make an appointment for your free initial consult today.

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.
