The therapy service delivery model for the preschool program is a combination of pull-out therapy, classroom-based therapy, and collaboration consultation services. The service delivery model is dependent on the needs and progress of each child enrolled in the program.
There typically are two to four slots reserved for children who need this support within a classroom of 12-18 children. The additional fee added to the tuition covers two- three half-hour sessions weekly of direct therapy, weekly therapy notes, progress reports, parent meetings, team meetings with class staff, case management and evaluations, as needed. In order to maintain appropriate ratios, children who currently receive or qualify for speech and language therapy are required to accept a speech and language support slot.
If you have questions regarding whether your child requires this support, please contact Sue Lyons at Speech and Language Services at 703-356-2833 or email her at [email protected].
