The “Talking Point Speech” Advantage
From the very first meeting, Talking Point Speech Therapy, LLC emphasizes family education and involvement in a child’s speech therapy. This approach promotes enhanced progress, as it allows children to be able to quickly carry skills into everyday life — into the contexts that they will be naturally used, and with the people with whom they will be using those skills.
Talking Point Speech Therapy fosters effective communication skills important for learning and understanding and also for expressing emotions, ideas, and knowledge. Therapy incorporates the field’s best evidence based practices and strives to encompass the entire child and his/her support people. It considers not only the child’s deficits but also his/her strengths and emotional well being.
Families are provided with information about normal speech and language development as well as activities to promote speech and language growth. More informed families foster and support faster results!
