    • Hi Elizabeth – I like how you think. Training parents is the key to helping children get quicker results. I am a Canadian SLP with 18 years experience working with school aged children. Nothing has a greater impact on a childs speech development then a parent working at home with their child. When teamed with an SLP who believes strongly in a parents ability to make a difference and who supports them fully in working on a home program, the results will come much quicker. I have worked with many parents and children via teletherapy for the past 8 years and this is my preferred method o f service delivery. Find out more here:
