What is a home program?

Therapy Toolbox believes that it is important to practice targeted skills in the home environment with the family members our clients interact with daily. Therefore, when our clients are ready to practice their newly acquired skills outside of the therapy time, a home program is created for continued practice. Every home program is individualized targeting our client's specific goals to increase the carryover and generalization of skills between therapy sessions.

How often will therapy occur and how long will it last?

Each client is unique in their speech and language needs. There are a variety of factors that contribute to therapy frequency and duration. The speech and language pathologist will recommend a frequency for treatment based on the results of the evaluation and/or therapy goals. Therapy can be provided up to several times per week to occassional consultants for skill maintenance.
