Telltale Signs Your Child Needs Speech Therapy

Language therapy for children is very different than language therapy for adults because, usually, a child never did have developed language skills so the parents and SLP are teaching the child how to use language for the first time.

For whatever reason, these children are having troubles learning how to use word and understand words and may require additional assistance to pick that skill up. 

Instead of waiting to see if the child will learn on his own and possibly fall further behind, therapy can be provided to help your child off to the best start.

Your child may have a language problem if:

  • She doesn’t use many words or has a small vocabulary
  • She has troubles getting you to understand what she wants
  • Others have troubles understanding what your child is saying

There are many reasons a child may be delayed in their language skills.  Reach out to a speech pathologist today help your child communicate!

No One Died Today. It’s Still a Good Day.

I am not minimizing pain and loss and grief. I am only putting it into perspective. Loss is hard and trauma is real. And It is indeed still a good day when we can feel hope and believe in our future. So no one died today. It is still a good day. We are counting our blessings instead of the losses.

How Should You Be Asking for Better Compensation as an SLP?

How Should You Be Asking for Better Compensation as an SLP?

Being a speech-language pathologist provides a range of benefits, from improved outcomes for patient care to ongoing career development. However, it also comes with its own challenges; occupational demands in this people-oriented profession can sometimes threaten workers’ well-being.

Because of critical staff shortages, school-based speech-language pathologists in states like Arkansas have struggled with high caseloads and relatively low salaries compared to the private sector. But regardless of which industry you choose to work in as an SLP, it’s important that your pay is commensurate with what your role demands and expects from you.
