Welcome to Speech Therapy!!

September 28, 2017 by Angela Hansen0
Welcome to speech therapy! There are so many different areas of speech-language therapy a speech-language pathologist (SLP) or speech-language pathology assistant (SLPA) may work on with your child:
-how your child’s speech sounds (articulation)
-how your child follows directions (receptive language)
-how your child uses words to communicate (expressive language)
-social skills (pragmatics)
-early intervention (under 3 years old)
At the end of your speech session, you should get some additional feedback or homework from your SLP/SLPA so that you can continue to practice new skills throughout the week. While we work hard to meet the needs of your child in our time together at the clinic, the real “magic” happens at home when you get a chance to reinforce those skills EVERY day. Just like when you have to take a big test at school, it’s better to study a little bit every day versus trying to cram all the information in the night before. It is the same story with speech therapy. Even if you only get 5 minutes a day, that will make a world of difference over the weeks and months in your child’s progress!
If you have any questions about your child’s speech-language development, please feel free to contact the clinic for more information! We are always happy to help.
