Building Blocks of Communication
We have secured up to 10 Zoom slots for parents and children* 12 months to pre-K & their parent(s) to work with a speech-language supervisor from
Barkley Speech Language and Hearing Clinic at UNL.
Each session will last 45 minutes 1x/wk for 8 weeks. The schedule will be 2 weeks on, 1 week off, 2 on, 1 off, for a total of 6 sessions.
There will be predetermined strategies that will be covered each day. These strategies will focus on increasing communication (verbal and other modalities and will be tailored to each family as the clinician sees fit and based on family preferences. A single strategy will be covered in each session, for a total of 6 different strategies that may be used independently or in conjunction with the other learned strategies. At the end of the semester, the families will be provided with a resource with information regarding all of the strategies that were targeted during the semester.
*Your child must be present during all therapy sessions, but the focus will be on training the parent(s) to facilitate and provide the strategies with their child.
