How can I help my child’s therapy?
Your role in your child’s therapy is very important. Therapy research shows that even a little parental involvement results in better outcomes when compared to only the therapist’s involvement.
Your role in your child’s therapy can include:
- Explaining your concerns about your child’s developmental progress.
- Working with the therapist in developing therapy goals.
- Being engaged in therapy sessions, where appropriate.
- Asking your therapist questions or concerns about the therapy.
- Providing feedback on your child’s progress at home and in school.
- Supporting your child on home practice and learning skills.
We can’t underestimate the benefit of your involvement with your child’s therapy.
