Parents as Partners - Speech Pathology
Parents have been, and always will be, the MOST important member of our team.
No one knows their child better than a parent does. Parents often play a critical role in both giving us insight into their child and also their role in carryover and generalisation in regards to therapy goals and targets.
Parents in therapy sessions are crucial for so many different things such as: - helping manage behaviour and sustaining an activity - helping to facilitate language and establishing generalisation in other contexts and environments.
We need parents in therapy more than ever as it assists greatly in the therapy process and gets everyone involved.
