Early Language Group

10170897_223677791176501_533150075865256977_nThe Metro West Early Language Group (ELG) is a social communication group that provides the opportunity for young children to build their language skills and begin to understand social communication.  Small groups of 4-6 children, led by two speech pathologists, will meet on a weekly basis.  Students age 2-4  will qualify for the ELG.  A variety of skills will be addressed during group time:

  • Play
  • Read Alouds
  • Group Activities
  • Social mini-lessons

Language develops at a unique pace for all children.  The ELG seeks to help young children build their language, whether they are non-verbal, just beginning to use language, or are advanced verbal children. Small group sessions will address:

  • Vocabulary building
  • Using language and increasing length of utterances
  • Participating in conversations with peers
  • Identifying and expressing emotions appropriately
  • Problem-solving skills

Speech Language Pathologists will work on these skills and others that have been identified through individualized goals.  Activities and lessons will be appropriate to the age of the children in the group. These will be used to help students build language skills.
