Tools of the Trade

Parents often ask us about the type of programs that we use for speech and language therapy. As interventionists of language and learning, tools and techniques matter in intervention. We use a plethora of tools specially designed for specific uses. By themselves however, they are just tools. That’s why we don’t believe in selling tools as programs. Every child will be requiring an individual diagnosis, and the clinician would then make an evaluation on what specific techniques and tools they will require. Students may also need different treatment at different times. Here is a glimpse of what we mean by “Tools of the Trade”. These are not exhaustive – we are continuously acquiring more which allows us to practice effectively as clinicians.
