Can I be in my child’s therapy session?
- For younger children, we strongly encourage parental involvement in the therapy process. This can mean being in the session and/or completion of home activities. Your Speech Therapist can discuss with your how you can best support your child’s progress.
- For older children, for example those in older preschool years or in primary/secondary school, we advise that your child attends therapy on their own. Your Speech Therapist will welcome you to sit in towards the end of the session, to debrief and update you about your child’s progress and what follow-up maybe required.
