1. BOOKS! – I love using books with any age. When working with a larger group or whole classroom I love the Big Book Kits!

2. OPEN ENDED TOYS – The farm set is one of my favorites for the little ones. We work on concepts, increasing language, vocabulary, and even speech sounds!

3. CAUSE and EFFECT – I love this ball popper. It’s great for reinforcement or showing cause and effect with the younger kids.

4. QUICK TAKE ALONG BOOKS from SUPER DUPER – These on the go books are amazing for traveling therapists. I use them everyday in therapy. The sets target articulation, vocabulary, auditory processing, grammar, and much more!

5. ART- I love using art and crafts with many of my students. These Art in the Jar or Busy Boxes are great because they have step by step instructions for each activity. We work on following directions concepts or just maintaining a task.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
