Family and Caregiver Coaching and Support
Enhance your loved one’s development/rehabilitation of communication skills by receiving the proper information and resources to assist you in understanding the communication deficit. The goal of this service is for the client’s family and caregiver to create communication opportunities and learning activities every day to further aid in the client’s progress.
While the speech-language pathologist (SLP) works with the client, it is highly encouraged that caregivers and family members have an active role in the activities. The SLP provides consultation with caregivers and family members, as requested by the client, on an ongoing basis regarding the client’s progress. When caregivers and family members are involved and practice the techniques at home, it can aid in the carry-over of newly learned skills and improve the overall prognosis of the communication deficit.
