Speaker: Lee Caggiano, M.A., CCC-SLP, BCS-F
Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2019
Time: 12-1:30pm ET
Description: Parents are a critical part of the therapeutic process, but many SLPs are not incorporating them in an effective way. Reasons for doing so can vary from timing of sessions, to settings we work in (such as in the schools), to not feeling confident in managing parental expectations or demands. It can become easy to work just with our clients, but we're neglecting to remember that parents are our clients as well. Getting parents 'on board,' allowing them the opportunity to grieve, to share, to collaborate, can exponentially improve outcomes--and most importantly, the overall quality of life and health of the environment for the children and teens who stutter that we work with. Strategies for incorporating parents effectively into therapy, tips for navigating difficult conversations, and opportunities to ask and answer questions will be offered.
