Speech language therapists also work with parents to help with facilitating progress. In the case of young children with language delays for example, part of therapy would include parental training.
Speech language therapists and occupational therapists work with teachers and educators in school in various different ways. A typical day may involve our visiting schools for the following:
1. An observation session to find out how the child interacts in school and deal with the academic load.
2. A meeting with the school staff and teachers to discuss about possible ways of helping the child which may include classroom modifications, adjustments to the way the child is being examined etc.
