Here are some activities to help your child practice their target speech sounds. Use the articulation pictures provided by your speech pathologist with these activities.
Students with language difficulties can benefit from support to help them communicate and learn at home and school. A formal language assessment by a qualified and experienced speech pathologist will provide specific strategies for a student’s individual needs.
When children start school their language skills still continue to develop and the stronger their language skills are, the better they will progress, especially with subjects such as reading, writing and spelling.
Sometimes people wonder why speech pathology, occupational therapy and other allied health services cost as much as they do. The hourly rates cover many costs in providing the service beyond just wages which we will explain in more detail below.
Talking Matters also offers workshops and professional development sessions to assist educators and families in developing their skills in assisting children. Sessions are planned and run at the Talking Matters office during the year. Training sessions and workshops are also possible at your site so please contact us if you would like to discuss this option.
