Why should I choose Speech Specialists for my child’s therapy needs?
It is very important to choose a therapist that is going to fit the needs of your child and your family. Here are some things to consider:
- Knowledge and Experience
The Speech Language Pathologists and therapists at Speech Specialists are all highly experienced in the areas of language and communication disorders. They have been working with speech and language delay, articulation, autism, fluency, and motor speech disorders for many years. Therefore, you can be sure that they will know the best treatment for your child and will provide therapy that is current and research-based.
Another very important aspect of therapy is whether your child is comfortable with the therapist. Our therapists are wonderful at building rapport with children and their parents. We do this by:
- We will get down on the floor to play with your child in order to engage them in the therapy process
- Our therapists will work on finding out your child’s interests ahead of therapy sessions so we can make the therapy experience fun and effective at the same time.
- When your child enjoys the therapy process, learning will be fun and easy!
- Parents as Intervention Partners
As a company, Speech Specialists approach towards therapy is extremely family centered. We strongly believe that parents need to be involved with the therapy process. To truly make a difference in your child’s life, our therapists will train you to help your child so you can be confident in helping your child on a day to day basis.
