As much as I can help a child during my weekly therapy sessions, I see faster progress and more consistent results when parents are involved in the treatment. I use what I’ve learned through the Hanen Centre to train parents to “do what I do” at home. This includes optional observation of the therapy session, observation of my application of the recommended treatment techniques, and completion of a home plan worksheet to help you consistently and accurately apply the treatment techniques.
Cost: $27 for each 15-minute session
Sessions are individualized to meet each child’s specific needs, but may include parts of the following:
- The Sound Contrasts in Phonology (SCIP) program, which uses the Contrast Technique to improve pronunciation of words (AKA articulation and phonology skills).
- The Hanen Centre’s It Takes Two to Talk® & More Than Words® programs
- The BASAL Baby Signs class, which I developed as a systematic way to teach parents baby signs and strategies for teaching these signs to their babies.
