The Most Important Supply: Back to School Speech Therapy
It’s time to start thinking Back to School! As parents and teachers, we want to give our kids everything they need to succeed, and at this time of year it seems easy: pencils, paper, notebooks, a backpack, maybe a lunchbox — all the tools of their trade. But it’s easy to overlook the most important things: excitement, self-esteem, self-confidence. Are there tools for that? Just like the physical tools our kids use to start their new year, emotional needs should be a priority; we want our children to step through the classroom doors with ease. Speech Buddies has been busy building an easy way to make back to school speech therapy, or anytime speech therapy, as accessible as possible…
Speech Buddies Connect. We are thrilled to announce a brand new service that makes it easy for parents to find speech therapy Providers in their area, and message them directly. Best of all – it’s free for everyone: parents and SLPs. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for parents to find guidance for their children’s speech and communication challenges.
How does Speech Buddies Connect work?
We start by helping you find the right speech therapist for your child. All listed therapists are certified Speech Language Therapists and screened to ensure you and your child will be matched with high-quality, credentialed providers in your area. Simply enter your zip code and optionally the age of your child, and we’ll supply a comprehensive list of SLPs in your area. You can also sort through the list to find therapists who specialize in any particular language or speech disorder. Additionally, each therapist’s information page is broken down into particular focus, where they perform services (in or out of the office) and insurance policies. When you find a therapist that looks like a great fit, it’s easy to message them.
