According to the Speech and Hearing Association, a Social Language Disorder has three characteristics:
- Difficulty knowing how to use language to meet different needs
- Difficulty knowing how to change your language based on who your listener is
- Difficulty making conversations
Beth Waite-Lafever, MA-CCC/SLP-ATP is CRG’s Speech-Language Pathologist and Assistive Technology Specialist. She can provide a social language evaluation to determine if you or your child have a speech-language disorder. If a diagnosis is made, Beth can provide individual language therapy. CRG also offers social skills groups and Gap Year services for recent high school graduates who need help making the next step in the transition from high school to adulthood.
