Articulation (pronunciation, lisp, etc.)
Apraxia of Speech
The first step in moving forward to speech therapy is to find out whether a child needs speech therapy and how speech therapy can help. This often looks like articulation assessments and expressive/receptive language assessments. After your child is assessed, you will receive a formal evaluation report that details the results of the assessment. This helps to determine the frequency of treatment, goals, and further recommendations.
Speech Language Therapy
Once a formal plan is in place and your child has goals to work toward, the fun begins! Speech therapy is made entertaining through fun games, activities, and salient practice sessions that can be replicated by others working with your child.
A large part of part of speech therapy success is carryover activities or homework that ensures you and your child are practicing outside of therapy. Don't worry, homework is fun, and with guidance, you will know exactly how to practice and complete carryover activities.
