Marcus Little M.Sc SLP Registered Caslpo Speech Language Pathologist
When I was a new SLP right out of Grad school I struggled. I had a limited number of visits. I could see kids a maximum of 1 x a week. Kids were not progressing. I felt like I was making no difference at all. I was stressed. I got into this profession to make a difference and could not live with being ineffective. I rolled up my sleeves and focused on doing only the things that were delivering results. I dedicated years to perfecting a solution. I came to the conclusion that an effective solution would:
+ Maximize therapy time – by maximizing number of repetitions per session.
+ Train parents, teachers, volounteer and caregivers in delivering a simple yet optimized homework plan.
+ Support those individuals in overcoming any obstacles in their way.
Getting kids beyond their speech difficulties takes work. When only the SLP is doing the work it will take longer! Get more people doing the work and the time in therapy reduces. More hands equals quicker results.
Absolutely! Nothing boosts a child's progress like committed parents working a daily home program. Help your Speech Pathologist by doing some of the work. Be committed to working a little bit each day with your child on their speech program. This is the critical piece to speeding things up. Want even faster results? Build a team to work with your child. When the team is trained to work with your child and follows the same game plan, you will find many hands make light work.
