Ages 0-3

Parents work directly with their speech therapist to learn cues and at-home strategies meant to improve their child’s communication.

Ages 3-6

Parents are encouraged to attend video sessions alongside their child. This means that both parent and child will learn valuable skills from their speech therapist.

Most children attend video sessions independently, but parents are kept in the loop with updates and tips during each session.
