HOW CAN PARENTS HELP?
Parents are key to the success of a child's progress in speech or language therapy. Kids who finish the program quickest and with the longest-lasting results are those whose parents were involved.
Ask the therapist what you can do. For instance, you can help your child do the at-home activities that the SLP suggests. This ensures the continued progress and carry-over of new skills.
Overcoming a speech or language disorder can take time and effort. So it's important that all family members be patient and understanding with the child.
