Why do families choose Speech Therapy Zone?
When parents contact us, they have expressed concerns about their child's communication. During our conversations, parents are comfortable discussing their child's unique needs. Once we get started with therapy, parent education is emphasized during or following each session to discuss progress and strategies for ongoing practice between sessions. We also provide ongoing coaching sessions for families wishing to continue the parent coaching experience once their child "graduates" therapy. We partner with families who are eager to engage with us to help their child's communication skills grow!
