Treatment Options

Communication Improvement Program (CIP)


The Communication Improvement Program (CIP) offers a treatment option for people wanting to improve their communication abilities. The program shares facilities and staff with ISTAR, with which it is affiliated.

Since its inception, CIP has helped clients of all ages with widely differing needs develop the communication skills that are so important to social and educational success.

CIP can help improve speaking ability in many areas including:

  • improving clarity of speech or language
  • expressing thoughts clearly
  • accent modification
  • assisting stroke survivors who have difficulty communicating
  • improving conversational and/or public speaking skills

A few of these areas are available in small group format workshops, in addition to our regular one-on-one speech therapy.
