Top tips for working on your child’s speech and language targets

Top tips for working on your child’s speech and language targets

The speech therapy process is very much a collaborative one.  Even if your child is lucky enough to get regular speech therapy sessions, that’s still only half-an-hour or an hour a week.  We can’t be there all the time, so your speech therapist should collaborate with school and nursery staff as well as giving you targets and ideas on how to work on your child’s speech and language skills at home too.
If you’re able to do this, it really helps.  However, we are also very aware that you have hundreds of other things taking up your time as well, especially if you have a child with complex needs, other children, a job etc.  No doubt your child’s school also give you things to practise and if they are having other therapies too, you may feel overwhelmed by too many strategies and suggestions and feel guilty that you can’t achieve it all as just getting to the end of the day seemed like an achievement!
