Chatty Child Speech Therapy

0

Chatty Child Speech Therapy, PLLC was founded by Heather Boerner, M.A., CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist. Chatty Child is a speech-language therapy center located in downtown Manhattan for children ages 1 month to 18 years of age. Chatty Child specializes in treating apraxia of speech, articulation, speech and language delays, and feeding delays for children of all ages. All of Chatty Child therapists are PROMPT trained and experts in working with children who are experiencing speech and language delays.

Heather has a personal connection to all the children and families she works with, as she was a child who received therapy herself. Through her own personal therapeutic journey, Heather was able to reach her full potential. She feels a special connection to all children with special needs and the unique challenges they face. It is her personal mission ‘to create voices one child at a time.’

Chatty Child is a state of the art speech and language center and employs highly dedicated, caring and compassionate therapists to work with children and their families. Emphasis is on empowering each child to find their own voice and to also empower the families to become successful communication partners with their children. Chatty Child specializes in creating a caring, stimulating learning environment for each child, with their interests and likes in mind.

Chatty Child has partnered with Sonya Kashlan of Connected Kids and now offers Occupational Therapy at the Center as well as accepting RSA DOE work. Occupational Therapy is a health profession focused on maximizing an individual’s ability to function in his/her daily life. OT's assist children and their caregivers to build skills that enable them to participate in meaningful occupations. A child’s 'occupation' is comprised of play, self-care skills, learning, school performance and social interactions. A therapist works to tap into a child’s interests to provide challenging therapeutic 'play' activities. An OT specializes in creating opportunities for children to master developmental tasks and achieve independence in home, school and within their communities.
Our Occupational Therapist, Sonya Kashlan, provides full evaluations including standardized tests, Screenings, Handwriting Evaluations and Remediation, School Consultations, Child and Family Advocacy; Family Training Sessions; Information Sessions; Group Therapy Session. Sonya conducts private individual session with fully coded invoices for insurance reimbursement and she accepts RSA DOE cases.

Chatty Child offers individual and group based sessions as well as social and feeding groups. Chatty Child is an approved DOE and EI RSA provider for pre-school and school aged children. Private pay with fully coded invoices are provided to assist with insurance reimbursement.

Sensory Street Pediatric Occupational Therapy, P.C.

“Handwriting Made Fun” is a program where kids learn to write and review their work in a sensory gym. Handwriting is a learned skill, and without lessons or feedback, habits will develop that over time lead to poor penmanship. There are multiple reasons why children struggle with handwriting. In this program, parents get to choose from three different bundle classes (bundles of 3, 5, and 10) that include a free handwriting screening to identify challenges and assign the best lesson plan that will guarantee improvement. Students have fun while learning, build confidence, and get motivated. Classes are unique and fit each child’s needs. Students are excited to learn and look forward to reviewing their lesson on selected equipment in a fun sensory gym. The program is affordable with great results; parent and teacher reviews confirm that the program works! Children age 3 ½ to 14 years old can register. Contact Sensory Street for more information.
