What Can I Do At Home??
Parents frequently ask me questions about how to help their child. Rather than writing lengthy explanations, I created videos to tell you exactly how I work on these skills in my therapy sessions. Think of me as your own personal internet SLP. These videos include – how to build first words, how to expand language, build joint attention, understanding CAS, using gestures, what to expect when you call a speech therapist, what to do when you can’t understand your child, and how to create an environment for talking in your home.
After watching the videos, talk with Chrissy and ask about specific goals for your child. Contact her directly by clicking the CONTACT tab at the top of the page.
