When we work on speech sounds with a child, you may see us playing games such as Candyland, Connect Four, Memory, Chutes and Ladders or Kerplunk. Prior to the child taking their turn with the game, they earn that turn by practicing their speech sound a specific number of times. Playing these games also allows us to work on winning and losing, turn taking, following the rules and increasing attention.
Our therapists at Mobile Therapy Centers may look like they are “just playing”, but there is much more that goes into our play based therapy than what meets the eye. After each session, our therapists write up “session notes” so parents know what we worked on during that session, how the child did on those goals and what parents can do at home to help continue to facilitate that growth.
To learn more about Speech Therapy Services, please don’t hesitate to contact Mobile Therapy Centers to speak with one of our therapists. We provide FREE screenings/consultations, so why not take advantage of the opportunity to have your child seen by a professional and then answer any questions you may have?
