Melospeech Inc. Earns Certified Autism Center™ Designation, Setting a New Standard in Orange County
Melospeech Inc., a leading speech and language therapy provider in Costa Mesa, CA, has acquired the Certified Autism Center (CAC) designation. The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) granted the accreditation, where therapists and support staff must complete position-specific autism training and certification programs.
“Melospeech Inc. strives to promote a safe, developmentally appropriate, child-centered atmosphere where children can master their communication skills through activities and topics that are meaningful to them. With the number of children diagnosed with autism on the rise, Melospeech Inc. wants to ensure that our staff is skilled and ready to help all families who come to us for care.” Dr. Givona Sandiford, PhD., CCC-SLP BCTS CAS SHRM-CP ATACP, the owner of Melospeech, expressed her pride in this goal.
Melospeech Inc. offers a range of evidence-based interventions and supports to help autistic children and those with other developmental disorders. The approach includes play-based and routine-based interventions. These are delivered in the child’s natural environment to promote the transfer of skills learned in therapy to real-world settings. The organization also offers Melodic-Based Communication Therapy (MBCT). This program utilizes the benefits of music to facilitate language development. Melospeech Inc. also advocates for strong parent and family involvement in therapy sessions. That helps create the most opportunities for growth and generalization of skills in the most natural way possible.
“Our programs go above and beyond to provide our partners with the best possible education and best practices to help enhance their skills. Our partners’ commitment to becoming certified helps staff continue to offer the best possible service to all patients they work with daily,” said Board Chairman Myron Pincomb.
