Atlanta Speech School


2V6A9873webAs the nation’s most comprehensive center for language and literacy, our four schools, five clinics, summer programs, and professional development center all share one common mission: to work within each program and collaborate across all programs to help each child develop his or her full potential through language and literacy. While each of our schools serves different types of learners, they all provide language-rich environments and interactions that give children the strongest possible foundation for communication and learning. Teachers with unmatched credentials and training tailor the latest cutting-edge research to the individual needs of each child, and provide the support and resources necessary so each child can excel. The curriculum in each of our schools builds the complex language, critical thinking skills, and empathy demanded for children to succeed as confident, independent learners.
