MAGPIE SPEECH THERAPY
Specialized Pediatric Services
Magpie adopts an ingeniously developed assessment tool called the D.A.P. (Dynamic Assessment Profile). This tool is based on child observation and identifies the skills that he/she possesses. At the same time it also taps into their learning potential and is highly interactive and process oriented. For more information on the Dynamic Assessment Protocol technique, you can refer the American Speech & Hearing Association link (ASHA)
Once a child is assessed for a primary disorder, the next step is building a customized early intervention program (IEP). Magpie specializes in providing intervention modules on the basis of evidence based practices from various globally researched programs for a holistic communication development of your child. We also conduct Online Therapy Sessions based on prior assessment.
Families who eat together tend to be healthier and happier. Magpie offers assessments and therapy in the area of Feeding /Swallowing difficulties. Please get in touch with us in case you feel feeding is an area of concern for your child and you need help with it. Our team is certified in multiple levels of oral motor therapy techniques.
Group programs focus on social skills development in children with difficulties in making friends, playing in a group cooperatively, following rules, limited imagination skills and increased tantrums. Our group programs are designed for children between 3 years to 18 years. The pivot of this curriculum is the social emotional learning in a vibrant and organic environment, with structured progress tracking, personalized expertise and generalizing social proficiency in daily settings.
Family based intervention is the heart of Magpie programs. We conduct monthly parent training courses covering a wide range of topics from Behavior Management ( Act.React) and Language Development (Hanen - More Than Words, It Takes Two To Talk, TalkAbility) to Building Play Routines (Play Module). The course is recommended based on the parent concerns, family structure, interaction time and the child’s communication profile.
Magpie Speech Therapy was founded in 2005 & re-invented in 2013 by Namrata Pai (Gold Medalist, Speech-Language Pathologist). We provide a full range of services for children with speech, language and oral-motor disorders. These include online sessions, screenings, consultations, evaluations, and collaboration with psychologists, occupational therapists, schools and other related service providers. Our core work is built on evidence-based practices and we have successfully created and conducted multiple parent-training and social-skills programs.
