We have Articles written by our therapists which may be of interest to parents and teachers alike, and a FAQ Section.
"Why should parents be involved in therapy?”
Parents are the true experts on their children, but the process of evaluation and the development of a therapy plan can sometimes be intimidating for parents.
When parents try to understand their child's diagnosis and become active participants in the therapy process, there are benefits not just for the child but for the parents and therapist too.
According to Hagstrom (1994, p.243) parental involvement is seen as “Essential to assessment and treatment because the talk of the child is jointly constructed with them and within home activities”
Have you reserved your berth on the CATTS Pirate Summer Speech Camps?
CATTS Speech & Language Therapists and their helpers are ready with a treasure trove of games and activities for our Piratey crews this Summer.
Who is it for?
These camps are exclusively for children with Special Needs and their siblings. The age range for the camps is between 5 years and 10 years old.
The camps will take place over 5 days for 2 hours a day, as a Junior (morning) and Senior (afternoon) camp.
To book, please complete the enrollment form here:
What is the benefit for my child?
The camp will focus on the children's Speech and Language and Occupational Therapy goals and supporting the siblings of children with special needs. Areas covered include speech and articulation areas, as well as phonics, rhyming and wordplay. Activities taking place will also assist with fine motor co-ordination.
This will be run by SLTs and additional helpers will be SLT students. The two hour per day blocks are intentionally set to ensure the kids get the most out of each day and don't get fatigued.
How much is it?
€100/week per child, €75/week for siblings. Places will only be reserved on payment.
