We had to wait a few months but at the beginning of march she started those sessions. She did 45 minutes every Thursday.
The sessions went really well. There were 4 other children in the group and Paige was the only girl. They were all aged 4 but some had just turned 4 and others close to turning 5. Since the first assessment we've noticed just how much Paige's speech has come on by itself, mainly because of school and her learning phonics but there is still room for improvement.
I was very curious as to what the group sessions would involved. Basically they just played games which all related to different sounds. They concentrated on the "c" "f" "g" "s" "t" sounds. The games were really fun and involved flash cards and toys to keep the children interested.
Paige was really quite shy at first but began to warm up as time went on.
We are now on a waiting list for some one on one sessions. The speech therapist said that she thinks Paige will only need a few one on one sessions and will then be where she should be at for her age.
I am so proud of how well she is coming on.
Has your child ever had speech therapy?
