Services We Offer
Free Preschool Screenings
We have partnered with many preschools and day care centers to provide FREE developmental screenings. We provide all of the forms for the teachers and parents, and our qualified therapist will go to the facility and perform a simple screening to determine which children qualify for further evaluation. Fundamental Communications assists the preschool directors, teachers, and parents during the entire process to ensure that all students are comfortable and safe.
We work with BabyNet and Child Find to provide comprehensive evaluations in our clinic to determine the need for services.
All of our therapists are licensed and certified BabyNet providers, and they are experienced in sensory integration, Autism approaches, Apraxia, feeding, and a variety of disorders and delays. Several of our therapists have received advanced therapy training in the PROMPT method, which utilizes touch cues to a patient’s jaw, tongue, and lips to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase, or sentence. Our therapists work around the child’s schedule in the location where they are most comfortable.
Individual Therapy Sessions
Our trained therapists incorporate a multi-sensory approach to help each child meet their individual goals. Our therapists see children ages 0 to 18 years old in their most natural environment, whether that be in their preschool or daycare, their own home, their caretaker’s home, or at our centrally-located clinic. We also empower families to reinforce therapeutic activities which best accommodate their child’s learning style.
There are numerous benefits to early literacy tutoring, and we are proud to partner with an experienced literacy specialist. She is a certified elementary teacher with a Master of Arts in literacy and over 15 years experience in education. She works one-on-one to ensure that every child is receiving individualized instruction, and she designs programs that are tailored to fit their specific needs.
Payment for Services
We have the lowest private therapy rates in the Upstate, and we accept private pay, Health Savings Accounts, SC Medicaid, and Tricare. We have an in-house billing specialist who will answer any questions you may have about payment.
