NH Speech Therapy Services
Maybe you met a chatty kid at the playground and later found out that they’re much younger than your child.
Perhaps you’re waiting on your next pediatrician appointment to get a NH Early Intervention referral.
Either way – you want answers and support now.
Does your child get speech therapy at school? Or you tried to get school services, but it didn’t happen.
Often kids get by at school, so they don’t qualify for support based on “academic necessity.” Many of these same kids could still do better with speech and language intervention.
Your child may benefit from some extra support.

Virtual Speech Therapy in NH
How does it work?
Virtual therapy is all of the age-old, time-tested intervention strategies in a virtual environment.
Before we begin, we’ll review any changes that may have occurred since our last meeting.
Then, based on the updates and our previous plans, we will practice a skill. Following a “I do, we do, you do” methodology, you’ll gain independence as the speech therapist decreases support gradually.
The family and therapist work together to address any challenges that occur. At the end of the session, we review what we noticed, reflect on any patterns, and plan for the next meeting.
How to get the most out of it
Please use a computer to get the most out of virtual speech therapy in NH. Tablets and phone screens are not ideal for this setting. If you have access to a second screen (e.g., a television screen), screen-mirroring can be an effective setup.
Some families of younger children may join the meeting using both their phone and a computer. This gives the clinician a view of the room and a close-up of the child’s face.
Some school-aged children can meet one on one with the clinician. The child and the clinician work together to practice the target skill.
Parents of school-aged kids should expect to join for at least 15 minutes of each session to observe therapy techniques and to learn how to support skills at home.
Toddler parents join their child throughout the session. With coaching from the clinician, the caregiver delivers intervention. This setup allows the child the freedom to explore their play area in a natural way, while the parent learns strategies to work on speech and language throughout the week.
