Communication Station: Speech Therapy, LLC provides pediatric speech therapy services in a child's most natural environment in order to facilitate generalization in the Stafford, VA. I believe that every child can succeed and that parents are an integral part of speech therapy and should be incorporated into therapy as much as possible
Communication Station provides various services such as:
- speech and language screenings
- assessment and diagnosis of communication disorders
- implementation of individualized treatment plans for children
- consultative services for parents which includes parent education and training of various communication techniques
- assessment and training the use of alternative communication modalities as needed
- free advice and educational resources via this blog and my Facebook page.
This blog was created to bridge the gap between parents with concerns about their child's development with therapists and educators. It is place where questions can be asked and I will to the best of my knowledge and professional experience and expertise answer them or refer you to someone who can.
My vision for this blog is that it will be used as an educational resource for parents to become their child's BEST communication partner!
I want to make it clear that these activities and suggestions are NOT to take the place of participating in speech therapy sessions with a licensed Speech-Language-Pathologist, but rather a place for parents to begin, to gain knowledge and insight, to change and enhance their communication skills with their children in an attempt to prevent the need for speech therapy or as a supplement to their therapy.
This blog is also written for the small group of children who may no longer qualify for speech therapy however are struggling to maintain their skills at home. Hopefully I will be able to answer the question: What I can do right now for my child?
You can do so much at home to facilitate growth in your child! You have the power to make positive changes in your child's life! Don't be afraid to try suggestions! I know you can do it! I hope you find great ideas here to help you along your journey!
