Language and listening therapy in the best learning environment - your own home
Why "in-home therapy"?
Typical daily behaviour
By having the therapist visit you in your own home, an accurate picture of how your child functions in their day to day environment is possible. Your interactions with your child can be observed and discussed within the context in which they present.
Children acquire milestones and learn new skills when driven by a need. For example, an infant learns to move across the floor in order to grab something out of reach. By looking at your child's home environment, everyday situations can be used to maximise listening and spoken language development.
Developmental goals are context driven
No clinic-to-home carry over
When you, as a parent learn a new strategy or technique to use with your child, it's important to use it every opportunity you have. By practising new techniques, under the guidance of a therapist, in your own home, you are already on your way to using the technique/strategy regularly with your child. Often when strategies are learned in a clinic environment, it can be difficult for parents to put into practise at home.
To ensure all children with hearing loss are maximising their listening and spoken language potential.
