The Positive Effects of Therapy Dogs Utilized in Speech and Language Therapy


We are extremely excited and proud to announce that Coastal Speech Therapy now offers a trained therapy dog utilized during speech and language therapy sessions.  For years, therapy dogs have been utilized to reduce a child’s separation anxiety, improve rapport and trust with a therapist, and assist therapists in improving a child’s spontaneous, functional language.
