Social Pragmatics

Covers the use of language, private individual or group situation: That these groups are run by Speech Language Pathologist have a different focus then groups run by psychologist's or a social worker.
Different language pieces, focus on rules (other children know), changing topic, breaking down a task, work on actual behavior (verbal and non-vebral).

While each of the following professionals comes recommended by at least three SPED PAC members, we cannot in any way guarantee the result. It is important to check their references, review their credentials, and interview them to understand whether their skills and approach are a good fit for your child.
