Straka Speech Castle Rock provides individual and group speech, reading, and occupational therapy by experienced, certified Speech Language Pathologists and Therapists.
Our therapy is evidence based and family focused. Patients receive individualized support through regularly scheduled therapy sessions with the same therapist. Consistent family support and training teach patients’ families how to facilitate progress outside the therapy session.
Conveniently located in central Castle Rock, we are easily accessible to families in Castle Rock, Monument and South Denver.
Star of the Month
Every month we are proud to feature one of our outstanding students as a Straka Speech Star. We ask their families to describe their experience and the progress they've seen, allowing both us and moms and dads to brag on some fabulous kiddos!
When David started his journey at Straka Speech Castle Rock at age 2 1/2, he had a vocabulary of about 150 words, mostly concrete nouns and verbs. He spoke in one or (occasionally) two word sentences. He was also very shy and anxious around new people. It took about four months for David to transition from a parent holding him during speech therapy, to sitting next to him, then sitting across the room, then outside the door. His therapist, Amber, was very kind and patient and eventually earned his affection and trust. During this time, his communication skills developed slowly, but steadily. When he was comfortable enough to work with Amber independently, he really blossomed. He just celebrated his fourth birthday and is speaking in 5-8 word sentences. He has become a veritable chatterbox at home. He is using pronouns, plurals, possessives, adjectives, adverbs, and even some similes and figures of speech. We were able to add occupational therapy services several months ago, and Amber and Margaret, his OT, have coordinated their efforts to build his attention and focus, ability to follow directions, fine motor skills and were able to reduce his social anxiety. We are so grateful that our beautiful boy can now tell us all about what he's thinking and feeling!
