She uses a play-based therapy model and also includes table time activities to maximize learning within each session. Jessica is also a firm believer that success in progressing towards speech and language therapy goals is directly correlated with the amount of organization and flexibility one possesses when working with children, especially children on the Autism Spectrum.
