THERAPY SESSION STRUCTURE
Sessions are usually 30 minutes in length. The first 5 minutes are used to review homework and generally check in with family and child. Most of the session is used to work on goals directly, with family member(s) participating or observing. The last 5 minutes are used for clean-up/transition and to review skills/strategies the family should work on with the child until the next session.
You will be provided with a folder to help organize materials. Please bring it to each session. It will include a calendar and a record for home programming for the month.
Parent involvement in sessions, and between sessions, is crucial for the child’s progress, as children spend most of their time with their parents, not with their therapists.
Approximately every 3 months, or after 10-12 sessions, a progress report will be provided with information about the child’s goals, progress toward those goals, and recommendations for next steps. If continued speech therapy is recommended, an updated POC will be provided.
