Speech and Language Sessions
Parent/Therapist Communication Log and Homework Procedures
Your child will be provided with a speech/language folder that will be sent home with them at the end of each session. His/her folder will contain a communication log so that we can communicate regularly about your child’s current status, progress, achievements and areas that require more attention. Homework will we also be sent home in the folder, when appropriate, to increase generalization and carry-over of skills learned in the speech room. In order for your child to make adequate progress, practice at home is key. Completing home practice activities with your son/daughter will help him/her develop and maintain speech and language skills. Homework activities will target your child’s specific IEP goals and will be a review of what we worked on in therapy. The frequency and duration of home practice activities will be determined on an individual basis. Remember to speak positivley about your child’s communication and praise them for their best effort. Please initial your child’s communication log indicating that you read my feedback note and completed any assigned home practice activities. I expect your child to bring his/her folder to every speech and language therapy session. Thank you so much for reinforcing your child’s speech and language goals at home!
