Summer’s Almost Here
The kids are counting the days before school is out.  Summer can be a time to relax, enjoy the hot days and cool nights. Learning language continues through play and emotional attachment.  These experiences can occur at camp, playground outings, family vacations and long walks.  Social language opportunities are plentiful.  Practicing the language skills learned throughout the school year can be generalized this summer while playing with neighborhood children, at family barbecues and when exploring new places near and far.

Take pictures.  Lots of pictures. Picture can be a used to sequence a small or large event (e.g. barbecue, vacation to the Dells).  Talk about each picture. Allow your child an opportunity to share the pictures with others to help them develop their expressive language and their confidence to speak to less familiar persons.  For older children, make a scrapbook filled with summer pictures. Allow your child to write a word, sentence or short story about each picture.

Happy Summer!

Timeliness
Please be sure to be present in the waiting room at the conclusion of your child's therapy session. Children can get very distressed when a parent or caregiver is not waiting for them. In order for us to maintain a timely schedule for all clients, it is important that families are available promptly at session's end.

Comings and Goings
Wee Speech welcomes Melanie Greenspan MS, CCC. Melanie comes to us from another private clinic. She has a wide range of expertise and we are excited to have her on our team! We say goodbye to Stephanie Marcus as she leaves us to pursue other areas of interest.

Summer Schedule!
Hard as it is to believe, summer schedule begins the week of June 11th! Please let the office know if you have not received a confirmed summer therapy time. Please inform your therapist of any vacations or planned time off from therapy this summer.

What Are We Blogging about in June? Do SLPs work on reading comprehension?
Yes, SLPs are responsible for oral language (comprehension and expression) and literacy (reading, writing, and spelling).  We can offer relevant skills for reading comprehension because we have knowledge of language subsystems (syntax, semantics, morphology, pragmatics) and development. SLPs understand how oral language skills transfer to reading. (more)
