Dallas Speech Therapy and Reading ServicesAt Dallas Reading and Language Services we work with pre-school and school-aged children. Our therapy and use of reading programs greatly improve our students' speech, language and reading skills. Our therapeutic approach helps a child change how he or she processes, or thinks about, sounds and language. Speech therapy is provided by a licensed and board certified Speech-Language Pathologist (speech therapist). Our office is located in the historic Winnetka Place building in N. Oak Cliff. At the corner of Jefferson and Polk, our location is easily accessible for families across the Dallas area Metroplex. Our services with pre-school age children is also multi-sensory and greatly improves their speech and language skills. Our therapy with pre-schoolers is provided within a context of literacy and learning basic concepts. As our younger clients progress into kindergarten they are screened for possible reading problems. Dallas Reading and Language Services uses the Lindamood-Bell® reading programs LiPS®, (LindaMood-Bell Phoneme Sequencing®), and Seeing Stars®, which is an integrative approach to reading and spelling. Our speech therapist has developed a Speech Cue program for younger children, and we use this with our pre-schoolers and Kindergarten students. All of these reading programs are multi-sensory methods of learning. We integrate reading instruction into school-age children's speech or language therapy. Your child will have individualized goals which will be addressed during each session, and updated monthly in a written report to parents. We also address both language and reading comprehension through therapy aimed at improving the child's visual imagery and language processing skills. This is done through traditional language therapy and use of the Linda-Mood Bell® program Visualizing and Verbalizing®. These services are also provided by a speech-langauge therapist. If your child does not qualify for speech-language therapy but would still benefit from this program, we can refer to a "developmental tutor". Parents are also encouraged to check out the Dallas Linda-Mood Bell® learning center. Our speech language pathologist (speech therapist) uses a combination of programs and approaches to best address your child's needs.
