Appreciation- when one of your 4 year old clients pick you a flower πŸ’

16/06/2020

Yesterday I had to hold back tears in a session. It was our first face to face after 3 months of Telehealth. Partway through a task the 4 year old stopped and said β€œMel, I am so glad you are at my house today. I have really missed you.β€πŸ’œ

It really makes you stop and take a breath that for these little ones you become a constant, a part of their routine and their everyday life and while people may only see the work you do with them on the surface as a SP we have the ability to impact their lives so early on in such positive ways that will support them to navigate through their early education, schooling and beyond and this is why I love what I do and I feel blessed to have so many wonderful clients and client families I work with πŸ’œ

When you’re a Speech Pathologist and your own child needs therapy πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ Lola is 4 this month and has common speech errors including fronting on her /k/ & /g/, Gliding on her /l/ & /r/ and Reduction of her /sh/. Home practice can be challenging, we use a combination of turn taking games when doing sound practice to increase the motivation to towards practice and are very lucky that day care also support her using her picture cards in a group game which provides her with peer modelling and support. Cued Articulation is also used in practice and modelling her errors in conversation.
Here’s a snippet of her warm up during a home practice.... it’s so heartwarming to see how proud and aware she is of her progress
