Why choose Crossroads Speech Therapy?
We want your children to ENJOY speech therapy.
The Crossroads team wants your child to look forward to their speech therapy session. It shouldn’t be a struggle or a chore, even for the big kids! We keep in mind what each children enjoys and try to incorporate that into their sessions. Have a sports fan? We’ll use basketball and hockey games for the kids who really like sports and who are competitive. Have a creative dreamer? We’ll work on sounds by writing stories about unicorns and fairies! We’ll joke around, talk in funny voices, all to make speech fun and make the sessions go by quickly. When working with the little ones, we follow their lead and we meet their individual goals through play. We play with what they are interested in.
The Crossroads team believes in the value of collaborating with other professionals involved with your child. Teachers, neuro psychologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, dentists, etc. can all provide valuable perspectives. Collaborating and working as a team is important so that dimensions to any child do not get missed.
We empower parents and caregivers.
We are only with your child for one session a week, but parents and caregivers are there all day, every day. Practicing speech homework at home and using strategies we teach can facilitate faster progress. We create a homework folder and script for parents, including what visual, verbal and tactile cues to say and do to get your child to make specific sounds, pairing speech practice with fun and novel activities that are only for speech time.
