Gestalt Language Therapy

Welcome to The Speech Clinic, a leading clinic in Dubai providing latest intervention technique for Gestalt Processors. We have specialized SLPs who are trained in gestalt language therapy and uses latest evidence based practices .Gestalt language processors process language in chunks and focus more on intonation than on words. A GLP may store a chunk of language for later use using the exact intonation. Gestalt language processors often use language rich in intonation, meaning their pitch may vary greatly.

What is Gestalt Language Therapy?

Gestalt language development is another form of language development where a child begins by learning gestalts, or chunks of language, and then learns to break down these word combinations to form original phrases. Many times, these gestalts are lines from songs, books, movies, or TV shows the child is exposed to. Gestalt language processors often use language rich in intonation, meaning their pitch may vary greatly. This can cause some gestalt language processors’ speech to sound song-like. Most gestalts (chunks of language or scripts) are also tied to an emotional experience/memory for GLPs. Most typically developing kids (analytic language processors) will say "dog" and then eventually "big dog" and then expand from there ("mama big dog"). Gestalt language processors may hear a parent say, "Wow, that's a big dog!" and that's what they say every time they see a dog (or any other animal, or walk by the park...). They have a hard time breaking the"chunk" (or gestalt) apart in the beginning stage of gestalt language development.
