Lakeshore Speech Therapy, LLC
Lakeshore Speech Therapy, LLC is a private practice serving the Cleveland/Northeast Ohio area. Our mission is to provide high-quality, affordable speech and language services for both children and adults using evidence-based assessment and treatment methods. Our focus is to improve functional communication skills in order to enhance the lives of the clients we work with and their families.
The family is considered an essential part of the treatment team. It is our philosophy that the client and their family are integral to the rehabilitation process. Assessments and treatment plans include feedback from parents and/or primary caregivers. They will also be guided in understanding their family member’s issues and in how to assist with their intervention to carryover goals and new learning at home, school/work and in the community.
We also work as a team with all the members of your family member's education and care, as decided by the family and therapist. We use assessments, reports and observations from other professionals in their life, including, for example, physicians, teachers, aides, psychologists, psychiatrists, educational therapists, tutors, occupational therapists, and physical therapists. We will also participate with other team members to coordinate goals and provide feedback and education, as appropriate. We welcome other team members to educate us in their various disciplines and in their specific work with your family member.
We do not believe in a "one size fits all" approach. This is the reason for the therapists being well versed in a number of techniques and types of intervention for various problems. Techniques include, but are not limited to, direct teaching and skill building with table top activities, floor play and play-based therapy, use of a naturalistic language approach, computer activities, reading/writing activities.
