There are many things throughout our daily routine that we can do to help our children learn language skills. The easiest one would be to narrate your actions. Talk about what you are doing and why! They may not understand completely but they are learning. While you are folding the laundry (assuming they aren't jumping in your nicely folded piles) with each piece of clothing, talk to them about it. What color is it? Is it a sweatshirt that we wear when it’s cold outside? Repetition is important too. That shirt you were folding… The soft blue shirt, the blue shirt we wear to cheer on your favorite team, the blue shirt that you are going to put in this pile over here. By the end of folding that blue shirt, you will be sick of it, but they will be learning what a blue shirt is, and building new brain connections.
If you live outside our radius, or would just prefer to not have therapy done inside your home, we can do therapy anywhere where we can have a private room. Libraries can be a great location and most have private study rooms. We can also see your child at daycare, the sitters, preschools, etc. all with your consent and the facility’s.
This is a challenging question as kids develop at different rates. However, there are some guidelines that you can follow. Check out our resources page for a speech and language check list or call us! We are happy to answer any questions you have and help you address any concerns. Phone consultations are free!
Evidenced-based practice is exactly what it sounds like. It’s treatment that has been shown over countless hours of research to have a positive effect on therapy treatments. Now, that is not to say that a certain therapy technique will work for your child. However, at Think Say Move we pride ourselves on the knowledge that we have of these techniques while also understanding they are not a one size fits all. We have had many experiences where we utilize a variation of the treatment protocol or combine two types of treatment to fit a patient.
We do not bill your insurance directly. However, we can supply you with a superbill upon your request, which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. We do accept FSA and HSA. Contact us about our rates and discounts.
