Hey there, amazing parents! 👋 Marc D. Nez, M.S., CCC-SLP here, your friendly neighborhood speech-language pathologist, and owner of Laryngenesis Therapy, LLC. Today, I'm excited to chat about something near and dear to my heart - recognizing the signs that might suggest it's time to consider speech or occupational therapy for your little one.

🚩 Communication Conundrums: Speech Therapy Flags

  1. Speech Milestones MIA: Is your kiddo not hitting those expected speech milestones? If the words seem to be playing hide-and-seek, it might be time for a speech check-up.

  2. Frustration Fables: Excessive frustration during communication attempts? We're here to help decode those struggles and turn those frowns into giggles.

  3. Articulation Adventures: If your child is on a wild adventure, consistently mispronouncing sounds or struggling with articulation, our superhero speech therapists are ready for action!

💡 Occupational Odyssey: Signs It's OT Time

  1. Fine Motor Fables: Trouble with fine motor skills? From holding a crayon to buttoning up, if it's a fine motor feat, let's conquer it together!

  2. Sensory Safari: Does your little explorer seem overwhelmed by sensory experiences? Occupational therapy can guide them through the sensory safari, turning it into an exciting expedition.
