Two-Part Series: Why Isn't My Child Talking?


It goes without saying that speech therapists get a lot of questions about why children aren't talking. In the first of a two-part series, Jessie Nelson Willis provides some insight and tips on how to encourage talking in children.

But did you know that sometimes occupational therapy is as helpful to encouraging talking as speech therapy? In the second post of the series, Jill Ronske explains why and how to determine which option is best for your child.

Parents' Morning Out

December 3, 2016
9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Do you need to finish your Christmas shopping? Just need a moment by yourself? 

We are hosting a Parents Morning Out open to the children we serve as well as their siblings (over age 2).  This is a free event. Limited space available. Sign up required in order to attend.  See front desk to sign up.
Intensive Therapy Sessions

Have you checked the balance of your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) lately?
Do you know how many covered therapy visits your child has used this year?

We are offering intensive therapy sessions this November and December that may benefit your child AND help you maximize your health care spending. Families with an FSA need to use up the money in their account by December 31 so that it isn't lost forever, and intensive therapy can help you do that while also helping your child progress. If your child hasn't yet used all of his or her covered therapy visits for 2016, choosing intensive therapy now may be a good choice - especially if you anticipate your child will need more therapy in 2017 than your insurance plan will cover.

Call or stop by the front desk to verify what options are available to you.
