Management of speech and hearing difficulties is usually a three-pronged approach. Usually we recommend working with the person with a communication or hearing difficulty in individual sessions (although sometimes we may suggest a group program). In these sessions, we will be working with on specifically selected targets to improve one’s difficulties. In the second instance, we may also work the client’s carers. For example, we may provide Parents with activities to complete at home so that targeted areas are carried over into other environments. Thirdly, we also encourage communicating with referral sources or other team members working with the client.
