Happy New Year!

The New Year is a wonderful time of year full of goals and resolutions for the coming year. What are your speech therapy goals for 2019? Here are some speech therapy related New Years resolutions to help kick off 2019!

1. Practice speech therapy at home.

 We know that life gets busy but speech practice can take as little as five minutes a few times a week to make a difference. Ask your child’s SLP how you can practice at home. 

2. Go to the library.

On these cold winter days it is easy to become a bit stir crazy in the house. Going to the library is a fun activity which leads to bringing home several new and exciting books for the week. Ask your SLP how you can help incorporate your child’s goals into reading with your child. This is a fun and efficient way to boost language and reading skills at home. 

3. Connect your child’s SLP and teachers.

Teamwork is an essential part of speech therapy. Your child is using speech and language all day long at school. It is so important for teachers and SLPs to put their heads together to help support your child. I do want to point out that there is paperwork that is required for the speech therapist and teacher to discuss your child. If you haven’t done so already, ask your school and therapist for the consent form.

4. Consistency.

 Each week in therapy your child is developing new speech and language skills. The more frequently they practice their new skills, the easier it is for them to start using them on their own.

 

5. Set up time to meet or speak with your child’s SLP

 if you have any questions about his/her services. We want parents to feel like a part of the team!
