Therapists working for S.P.E.E.C.H. encourage parents to attend and participate in sessions and follow up activities at home. Parent coaching helps parents to develop a better understanding of the child’s difficulties, learn how to use strategies to support speech and language development and see how games and activities that can be taken home are used to practice specific speech and language skills.
Through a partnership with the Northern Gold Coast Communities for Children Initiative S.P.E.E.C.H. Pty Ltd has been able to provide a number of parent child interaction programs to families.
