University Center for Language and Literacy Language Development for Children


For children struggling with language, our Preschool and Communication Therapy (PACT), Core Preschool & Communication Therapy (CorePACT), or specialized testing, consultations and evaluations may be able to help.

Both the Preschool and Communication Therapy (PACT) and Core PACT programs are structured play and song-based learning that addresses the communication needs of children 3-4 years old and 18-36 months old, respectively, who are struggling to learn language.

The specialized testing, consultations and evaluations can help figure out both strengths and weakness within a child’s speech-language development and will help us build a plan of action to help them excel to the best of their abilities.
