Parent Coaching

At Glow Bright, we know that learning doesn’t stop when we sign off at the end of our speech therapy sessions. Opportunities for language acquisition and speech practice arise whenever you communicate with or around your child… Which is constantly! In order to provide the best care possible for your child, we need a team member who truly understands their needs, strengths, weaknesses, interests. Who knows your child better than you? Our idea of successful speech and language therapy isn’t binary: therapist and child, teacher and student. It’s collaborative!

We believe the greatest level of care is reached by building a strong connection and relationship with each family and child. We believe in treating from a holistic approach, and focus on one of the most important, but also most frequently overlooked elements: parental support. Here are a few reasons why we believe a parent’s role in their child’s speech journey is the most crucial piece of the puzzle.

Therapy alone isn’t enough.

One weekly speech therapy session isn’t going to radically change your child’s trajectory the same way one workout at the gym isn’t going to make you lose weight and get in shape—what you do the rest of the week matters! Parent coaching is another crucial pillar of your child’s speech and language foundation. By taking an active role in your child’s speech therapy, you position yourself to be the primary driving force of your child’s progress, instead of a passenger along for the ride.

You are your child’s first and most important teacher!

As parents and caregivers, one of your most important roles is to teach your child about the world around them. You do it instinctively, and with love! This role doesn’t change just because your child needs some outside assistance. You are the one talking to them, reading to them, and playing with them day in and day out.

Children learn best through play, daily routines, and activities.

Children thrive when they feel safe and comfortable. Risk-taking (academically speaking) is an important part of the learning process, and there’s no better place for it than in the safety of your own home! We teach you and your child the best practices for success, but knowledge only goes so far without practice. Repeating and reinforcing the skills your child learns in our online speech therapy session helps them retain, hone, and master these skills over time.

You already have the tools you need to help your child succeed.

You may find yourself thinking, but I don’t know what to do! First of all, trust yourself! You know your child better than anyone. You know their interests, their temperament, and how to engage them in learning. In fact, most parents are surprised to find how many speech and language teaching tactics they already use innately without realizing they are recognized best practices!

Secondly, that’s where we come in. Parent coaching classes are designed to help you learn useful strategies to use at home throughout your day to aid in promoting speech and language development. We lend our knowledge, expertise, and support to help empower YOU. By teaching you these simple strategies, we help you reach your full potential as the all-star parent that you are!
