At Vancouver Speech Therapy, the aim is to encourage parents to be apart of their child’s therapeutic process to receive optimal results. Parents are not mere observers of their child’s therapy, rather, they should continue what has been started in the therapist’s office to ensure change is realized.
Parent coaching includes:
Sometimes parents are intimidated because they feel it’s a lot to add to their busy every day schedules and implementing strategies is just too much. Vancouver speech therapy recognize the busy lives of parents as they balance work and family care so we create realistic weekly goals for parents to work on. One small step at a time can make a big difference in the long run. A little really does go a long way.
At Vancouver Speech Therapy we arrange for in home visits for clients who cannot engage online. Our SLP assesses the children via parent interview and online observation. The SLP then writes up a treatment plan the SLP assistants employ in the home. The SLP does weekly progress checks with the SLP assistant to monitor progress closely and will make home visits when needed. At Vancouver Speech Therapy we work hard to foster a close relationship with the family and clients we work with.
Currently we are providing in home services in Vancouver and Burnaby. Starting October 2021 we will be providing in home services in Maple Ridge and Abbotsford.
At Vancouver Speech Therapy we do online sessions through video conferencing on Zoom. Online sessions are effective for children who can engage for 30-60 minutes online. We create a session plan that targets all necessary goals while keeping the client engaged. Online sessions are also arranged for adult clients who would like to work on accent reduction and other speech/language goals.
We provide online services to individuals all over BC.
