The Atlanta Speech School relies on the brain and social science of the past 30 years, as the nation's leading experts in brain development and language and literacy acquisition have determined that relationships, engagement and instruction between adults and a child is required from the last trimester of pregnancy through age eight for the construction of his or her reading brain.

The School's programs draw from the latest research and benefit from academic partnerships with leading researchers. In addition, lead instructional and clinical staff hold advanced degrees in their specific fields and the programs hire staff from a range of specialties which include special education, speech and language pathology and occupational therapy.
