What Makes This Program Unique
The "Talk to Me" Program is a unique program because of the following:
1. COMBINED 1-ON-1 DIRECT COACHING, SELF-STUDY & SUPERVISED INTERVENTION SESSIONS
You and me meet privately twice a week for an hour to discuss your child's progress, and to trouble-shoot challenges. In between sessions, you have specific assignments to work on with your child based on the skills he needs to develop. The other two weeks I supervise you playing with your child and providing intervention on Skype.
2. REVIEW OF VIDEOTAPED INTERACTIONS BETWEEN YOUR CHILD AND YOURSELF, OTHER ADULTS & PEERS
In between sessions, I review videos of your child's interactions, and email you my notes. During our coaching sessions, we discuss my observations, and come up with a plan of action to address concerns and continuously support your child's development.
3. SKYPE TELEPRACTICE SESSIONS
With your help, I will teach your child how to produce sounds, make sentences, follow directions, and play appropriately. You will learn visual, auditory and tactile cues directly from me, live.
* This is dependent on you and your child's ability to attend remotely. In the case of poor attending skills, special arrangements can be made for person-sessions.
4. PERSONALIZED KIT WITH MATERIALS NEEDED FOR INTERVENTION SESSIONS
After our initial evaluation, I will mail you a kit with materials you can use during our telepractice sessions and on your own with your child. These are materials that are functional, appropriate, and motivating to your child.
* A $500 value. If additional materials are required, the family is responsible for the purchase and shipping costs.
6. TRAVEL TO LOCATION FOR 5-DAY INTENSIVE TRAINING
In the middle of the program I travel to your home, consult with you/ other teachers/ caregivers, and work with your child directly for 5 days straight.
* This is an added BONUS. Out of town families need to pay for transportation & accommodation, these costs are not included in this package.
