Benefits of In-Home Therapy
In-Home Speech Solutions was built on one simple belief: that the best place for children to receive speech- language therapy is in their own environment. After experiencing first hand the challenges of providing exceptional care in various school systems, Jennifer realized the only way to truly provide the therapy needed to consistently move children forward in their natural setting.
Ability to include family- We like to include family during therapy sessions as much as possible. This is an integral aspect of in-home therapy since family members are often your child’s main communication partners. There is no better way to practice the skills your child is working on than with his or her main communication partners within a natural setting.
Build Confidence- Having therapy in a place where your child is already comfortable gives your child more confidence. Children often are more willing to try new strategies and techniques to help improve speech and language abilities within a natural setting.
Real Life Words and Practice- When working with your child in your home it allows us to target vocabulary and language that is necessary for daily communication. This gives us the opportunity to incorporate speech and language into real life situations using familiar objects and settings.
Less Restrictive & Truly Individualized Custom Therapy- Doing therapy in the home means that we do not have to play by the rules of a school district or clinic. Instead, we can focus on the immediate needs of the child and help them to be a more functional communicator.
You Are Our Top Priority With True Attention Given- When you allow us to come into your home, we strive to give you the best therapy possible. We are committed to always providing individualized 1:1 therapy.
Generalization & Carry-over- Therapy in the home often allows for the greatest therapeutic gains and generalization as it’s taking place in your child’s natural environment. When family members are active participants in the therapy session, they will be able to carry over what we work on in various settings, which promotes generalization.
Convenience- Busy schedules and routines can make it difficult to find time for proper speech-language therapy. If we come to you that eliminates driving time and juggling your families’ busy schedule.
In-Home Speech Solutions is determined to work collaboratively with children and their families to maximize each child’s communication potential. We believe every individual deserves the opportunity to communicate to the best of their ability. We value family engagement, creativity, and high quality individualized therapy services. With a family-centered focus, we strive to help children achieve their fullest potential! We use evidence-based assessment and treatment methods to facilitate great client achievement. In-Home Speech Solutions specializes in providing family centered and individualized in-home speech-language therapy for children ranging in age from birth to adolescence.
