Parent / Caregiver
Training & Coaching

The therapists at Speachy are trained to counsel, teach, and support parents and caregivers in everything from how to get rid of a pacifier to how to deal with getting a diagnosis of autism and how to help themselves and their child be an effective communicator in the world.

Our training and counseling sessions are done either in the office or over zoom for 30, 45, or 60 minutes. They may be conducted with the children present or only with caregivers.

The sessions may include demonstrating and explaining therapeutic techniques and strategies the clients are doing in therapy for better and quicker carryover.

Explanation of where the children are in terms of their development and how to move them forward; it may be a planning session for upcoming evaluations and meetings with other professionals or medical teams; and it may be listening and offering advice and support to caregivers going through difficult times with the social, emotional, behavioral, and communication challenges of their children or themselves.

Helping parents & caregivers navigate questions like:

  • How do I help my child speak at home?
  • How can I help my child with communication-based aggression, social anxiety, and behaviors like tantrums?
  • How to process and deal with receiving a diagnosis of Autism, ADHD, among others?
  • What do I do now that I know my child has Autism?


Caregivers get a better sense of what is working in therapy and how they can help at home:

  • They learn skills to motivate, better understand and listen to their children and how to advocate for them when necessary.
  • Parents have the safe space to share information about what’s going on outside of therapy that can assist us in helping them and their child reach their full potential and live extraordinary lives.

Things that improve because of counseling and training:

  • Children reach their therapeutic goals faster and are discharged sooner; parents learn how to listen and communicate better with their children and other members of the family.
  • Parents are given tools and strategies to help themselves and their children feel more confident socially, emotionally, and with all aspects of interpersonal communication.
