Early intervention is vital to help students with developmental delays, speech delays, expressive language delays, and receptive language delays. Intervention and therapy can help support families and children by giving them a greater understanding of their child's needs and how to break learning down into smaller steps for their child so they can succeed.
You have to take each new challenge one step at a time. As you are taught each new strategy, you need to give yourself time to practice and you will find that the more you practice, the more you improve at something that used to be difficult.
I love seeing students master goals that were once difficult for them. I want all students I work with to feel empowered, important, and confident.
