PARENT COACHING - SPEECH THERAPY FOR TODDLERS

WHAT IS PARENT COACHING?


Parents can be their child's BEST speech therapist. Help your child start talking with the most effective speech therapy strategies, which you learn with a speech therapist via a live online video chat.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM BEST FOR?

Kids who are ages 18 months to 5 years old who may not be receiving speech therapy services for a variety of reasons. For example, these children: 

  • May be on a wait list for speech therapy

  • Didn't qualify for early intervention

  • Live in an area with minimal or no access to a speech therapist

  • Have parents that are busy with other kids/work/home life, making travel to a clinic difficult

 

WHY PARENTS SHOULD ENROLL IN PARENT COACHING

There are many reasons parents should learn speech therapy strategies through this coaching program. Here are some great reasons why:

  • Kids who are late talkers/speech delayed have been shown to have worse outcomes
     

  • After learning speech therapy strategies parents use them all day and all week. This helps kids learn faster. 
     

  • Children at this age learn best in their natural environment (e.g., home, daycare etc.) with people that they feel comfortable with (e.g.,  parents, grandparents, caregivers). 
     

  • Traditional face to face therapy provides approximately 1 hour per week of therapy.  Using a family centered approach, families can implement ~60 hours of intervention throughout the week when a parent knows how to use these strategies.
     

  • We teach parents and caregivers to use everyday items like your child's toys, during everyday activities like meals, bath-time and other routines. Studies show that the magic lies in the family's interactions with the child.​
     

  • By working with families to develop goals, speech therapists are able to help families to improve interactions with their children in areas that matter most to them. 
     

  • A parent is a child's FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT teacher. And studies have shown that parents help kids make the most progress. 
     

  • It's usually cheaper than speech therapy. Why? Because kids who's parents use the strategies speech therapists teach them end up graduating from speech a lot earlier than kids who work with speech therapists alone. 
     

  • Parents feel empowered that they are taking an active role in their child's progress.
