Speech Therapy for a Diverse Society
Indigo Speech and Language offers services for a variety of communication needs. With specialization in pediatric anti-oppressive intervention, sessions are designed to be functional, fun, and affirming.
What is anti-oppressive speech language pathology?
Anti-oppressive practice is an approach to working with all individuals in a way that is inclusive and equity-seeking. It requires the practitioner to embrace cultural humility and to engage in extensive on-going education.
Due to the lack of diversity in licensed speech-language pathologists, individuals from marginalized identities are often seen by clinicians who may hold biases against them. At Indigo Speech and Language, providing affirming services rooted in anti-racism, anti-ableism, and anti-oppression is fundamental.
Beyond Cultural Competence
Cultural competence is not enough to fight injustice in healthcare and education. Indigo Speech and Language is committed to anti-racism, strengths-based approaches to linguistic diversity and neurodiversity, and social justice in education.
