SPLASH Therapy was designed by Excel Speech Therapy Center to help children develop communication skills in a different and exciting setting. A child who participates in this 9-week program works one-on-one with a speech-language pathologist to target individualized speech, language, and social goals. Research has shown that children with sensory integration deficits and/or children with Autism Spectrum Disorders benefit from learning environments that support their sensory needs. Being in the water provides stimulation and input, creating an effective learning environment for facilitating language.
Who: Children with speech and language delays/disorders who enjoy being in the water.
Where: Clairemont-Mesa Boys and Girls Club of San Diego
