Giving Voice – speech and language therapy

[Music] so in the moment Patrick [Music] by the age of two I realized that there was actually quite a problem that we needed to address because he wasn’t looking it’s a very basic thing of nothing else communicated to me this is caused a lot of frustration for here – an anger for him you make him so difficult in the house I struggled with how to deal with it until I have help from speech and language therapy speech and language therapist can work to support children with speech language and communication needs in a range of different ways sometimes we work with children in one-to-one sessions we work in groups we try to make them as filin is exciting and motivating for that child so we use play a lot in our therapy sessions because plays children’s work and children learn a lot through play when they were exploring it’s a great opportunity to give them language to support their communications going we often start with the introduction of one activity followed by a different activity which is working on the same target word so different games and then we may finish it with a story or a song just to kind of enclose everything that we’ve been doing [Music] currents are invited parents are given information about their child’s level and then we work with them to help write our targets and goals and followers maybe an activity which we then talk about how the parent can do that and throughout the week krysta child and making sure that the parent or the adult that’s working with the child knows what they’re going to continue doing after our sessions of things [Music] well they enjoy discussions in school so much because they’re really fun and they’re really hands-on the children can get involved it’s quite exciting for them to come out of class and get that kind of one-for-one attention and we can see the improvements over time to see their speech developing speech and language therapy has enabled my children to reach Falls that I never thought that they will reach I can see the progress I can see it because I get reports so we can see the difference there the Angels spent to move from heaven ever since starting sessions I’ve seen a week anhui improvement in Patrick use has rapidly improved his speech the skills that it gave to me as a parent have been invaluable it’s really important that people come to their speech and language appointment because in the session we’re showing them activities that they can carry out to support that child communication skills and this means that we’re able to make a lot of change by working really closely with parents carers nurseries and school because communication is everybody’s business and Happy’s all day every day [Music]
