Christine Wilson’s Speech Therapy Clinic has gone HIGH TECH!
Our therapy center has always been a family centered practice. Family members have always accompanied the client to the therapy session in order to see and learn what their child is currently working on in speech. The parent also sits in on the therapy session to learn how they can work on goals at home. Christine has noticed that children tend to behave better for her than for their parents/relatives. Christine has installed cameras in the treatment rooms that send a video to an iPad, where parents can watch the therapy session LIVE in the lobby.
We always have a Disney movie playing in the lobby for the siblings of our clients. This allows for siblings to be entertained, while the parent is able to watch the therapy session. As a result of watching the sessions, parents have a better understanding of what home programming should entail. The camera has a microphone which allows Christine to talk directly to the parent during the session, while working with the child. The parent can wear headphones that we provide or may bring personal head phones. This HIGH TECH additon to our clinic is a great way to show parents home programming tips/ideas.
The feedback from the parents has been very positive! Many parents have commented on how much more focused their child was for the therapist without the parent in the room.
If you are concerned that your child may have difficulty communicating, come to Christine Wilson’s therapy center and see what everyone is talking about!
