Speech therapist keeps records on the initial evaluation, progress, and discharge of the child.

4 Tips for Speech Therapy at Home

Encourage conversation: Have regular storytelling sessions with your child. Instead of asking him a  Yes or No question, think about asking open-ended, thought-provoking questions such as, “What would you do if you saw a great big cow in your backyard?” By asking questions that elicit a detailed response, you are encouraging your child to express his or her ideas without the fear of being right or wrong.

Teach them to Listen carefully: Try using Telephone as a tool to teach your child to listen to your words and relate them to another person. Have all the family members and your child sit in a circle. One person whispers a word to the other and that person whispers that word to the next person. The goal is to end up with the same ending phrase as the starting phrase.

Reading: Reading out to your child is one of the most important things you can do with your child. Ask questions about the pictures, encourage your child to point at items on each page. For a little older child you may ask your child to think of experiences that they may have. All these activities shall help your child make connections with whatever they are hearing all day long

Make it FUN: Children learn best when the experience is fun and interactive. The child may not respond so well if they find the activities boring and “homework” like. Instead, make each session of your speech therapy something your child will look forward to and will want to actively participate.
