Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Apprentices in Speech-Language (ASLs) can treat a variety of disorders, including speech, language, cognitive, social, and swallowing. The speech-language therapy staff at LSG and Associates can assist in providing services in school, in home services for DD Waiver, and with clinical services at our office. Teletherapy services are also available.
Our Occupational Therapist (OTs) and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) work with students to target physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and sensory components that may be stopping them from reaching their IEP goals.
Our Physical Therapists work with students on mobility, strength, balance, and all issues that can impact a student’s ability to engage in their physical environment. They set realistic IEP goals to help students feel confident in and out of the classroom.
Our Licensed Social Workers support students and advocate for their emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. LSG’s social workers counsel students, provide at-risk students with useful resources, and work with their IEP team to provide supports at school and at home.
Our Diagnosticians consult with local education agencies to determine the area of need and appropriate testing. LSG’s bilingual diagnosticians are trained to test for cognitive, intellectual, academic, social, emotional, and individual areas of deficits. They deliver professional and prompt informative reports that can be used to complete the SAT process and assist in making eligibility and informed placement decisions.
LSG’s team of highly trained psychologists consult with school staff to determine the area of need and appropriate testing for academic/learning interventions as well as mental health interventions. They assist with developing supports for students who have experienced trauma, depression, and social and emotional deficits that hinder social and academic functions to be treated within the school system or through referrals.
We work closely with the New Mexico Autism Project to support teachers who serve children with autism in their classroom. Our team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) assesses the needs of teachers, provide materials, and model strategies that can be implemented to support students’ unique needs.
