Back to School with Gr8 Speech
I may not be a back-to-school mama just yet (Lord knows I will never be emotionally prepared), but I am a back-to-school teacher. This month, I'll be heading into my third year teaching Pre-K. My students are 3 and 4 year olds of varying special needs and exceptionalities, many of which are receiving services for speech and language delays. Now, more than ever, early intervention is key to helping identify a child's needs and address them in order to set goals and provide the services, therapies and interventions needed to helpthese children make progress in their areas of need, as well as to help inform parents and families and provide strategies to meet the needs of their children at home! As a teacher, I've always seen this as highly important. But now that I'm a mom, I find early intervention to be even more so of the utmost significance.
That's why I'm so excited to tell you about a wonderful resource, Gr8 Speech! Gr8 Speech is an online speech therapy company that provides services via video conferencing, making it ultra-convenient to receive therapy anywhere you can get Internet access. Gr8 Speech has speech therapists certified by the American Speech-Language Hearing Associationpracticing in 27 states with clients across a wide range of ages, from 5 to 85, and of varying communication disorders such as aphasia, articulation, ASD, developmental delays, fluency, hearing loss, pragmatics, etc. Not only is TeleSpeech therapy convenient, but also incredibly flexible, as appointments are scheduled at the client's convenience and location is also determined by the client. Last time I checked, this would be fabulous news for any busy parents, especially those with multiple kids! I know for many of the parents in my classroom through the years, figuring out what to do with older or younger siblings while one child received therapies at an office tends to be a nightmare. Imagine having your child receive therapy in the convenience of your own home, while siblings are comfortable in their own space and occupied, or you are able to work on your own to do list, whether that's making dinner for your family or getting some work done while you supervise the session. Talk about making parenthood easier! If you're curious and would like to learn a little more, check out the video below.
What makes me even more excited to share Gr8 Speech with you is a special offer for a FREE first consultation and FREE first therapy session with a package.
This is a truly wonderful resource and opportunity for any mamas out there struggling to rush kids to and from therapy or questioning whether your child should be receiving any speech services to begin with, so don't miss out! I know as a teacher, I wouldn't want my students and their families to lose a chance like this.
