At Kid Sense we know that play is the foundation of children’s learning so it stands to reason that Speech Therapy must be fun and creative to help teach children without them realising they are learning. Our Speech Therapists recognize the importance in gaining a child’s interest quickly and completely to secure their active attention to the speech therapy learning teaks.
So what is the recipe for an engaging and productive speech therapy session? Well, the Kid Sense Speech Therapists believe a captivating Speech Therapy session requires at least some of the following ingredients:
1. creative and innovative play that uses the children’s imagination to develop games that are fun and captivating because they are led by the child.
2. a never ending supply of games that appeal to children of different ages with a variety of interests (which explains why our cupboards are overflowing with toys).
3. adaptable and flexible activities that can meet a child’s changing needs as well as their variable energy and activity levels..
4. use of evidence based strategies to ensure that therapy is effective and well targeted.
