Once your child has had an expressive and receptive language evaluation by an SLP, come see what Stepping Stones has to offer.
Stepping Stones is the only multi-disciplinary program of its kind in Georgia, focused entirely on maximizing the brain development of 3 to 5 year old students with mild to moderate speech and language delays. Stepping Stones is a safe, encouraging learning environment where Masters-level clinicians and teachers apply the most current brain science to individualize instruction - with joy - for each child in their care.
Stepping Stones students are intelligent children who need help translating their thoughts into words. They make extraordinary strides when surrounded by supportive and highly skilled educators. Here, they develop deep relationships and come to school every day excited to see their friends and teachers. When they come home, parents experience their eagerness to learn to communicate and advocate for themselves as they share what they know.
Our journey at the Atlanta Speech School has been incredible thus far. When we enrolled our child, our focus was speech improvement and knowing that he was genuinely cared for – anything else would be a bonus. Little did we know that he would achieve so much more. He can now express his desires with clarity, and his communication skills have blossomed. Additionally, trusting someone else with your child's well-being is a major decision, but the staff and faculty at the school made it effortless.
Stepping Stones at the Atlanta Speech School has been life altering for our family. We came to the school after trying multiple early interventions and countless speech specialists; all with little success. In just one year at the Atlanta Speech School, our son has grown in more ways than we ever could have imagined. His articulation and vocabulary has exploded. Equally important, his love of school and learning has grown exponentially. Stepping Stones has done more than give our son his voice, they have created a truly loving, welcoming community. Through a fully immersive Speech and OT curriculum, our son has done more than "catch up;" he is thriving in his speech, his social emotional growth and his pre-academic skills. Our only complaint is that he can't just stay there forever.
Deep gratitude to the Atlanta Speech School's Stepping Stones for their exceptional preschool program. Our son James attended for kindergarten, and we sincerely regret not enrolling him sooner. Stepping Stones has truly prepared him for the next phase of his educational journey. The attention to detail and unwavering support shown by the staff is remarkable. We are immensely grateful for the top-notch teachers who have nurtured and guided our children with utmost care. Thank you for fostering an environment where our little ones can thrive and grow.
