Working in the home directly with families means that we are in the child’s natural environment where they communicate every day and feel most comfortable.

It gives the opportunity to practice functional every day skills which can be carried over when the therapist is not present. It also means that we can help set up a communication friendly environment.

Work in the home includes:

  • Case history and discussion with parents/carers

  • Assessment

  • Observation

  • Modelling strategies

  • Video sessions and feedback

  • Practicing specific therapy approaches with parents/carers

  • Generalising of skills

  • Providing resources needed in order to enable carry over

  • Opportunities for problem solving
