As we all adjust to the “new normal” of social distancing, and the virtual world – our team of therapists and audiologists have been hard at work developing resources to ease the transition for parents and kids.

COVID-19 + Your IEP
This pdf covers parent(s) and child(s) rights as it pertains to an IEP currently in place, and school closures or changes due to COVID-19.
Our audiologist, Dr. Lauren Gowdy, breaks down relevant information in this comprehensive and easy to understand blog post. So far, she’s covered connectivity, and captioning options for eLearning and beyond.
Listening + Spoken Language at Home
Our therapists aren’t only keeping busy with teletherapy from home. Kelly Hultman, MS, CCC-SLP, has created a series of LSL Tip Tuesday videos for working on listening and spoken language from home. A new video is added every Tuesday!
We have also created a fun Songs and Finger Plays handout to accompany our Songs + Rhymes LSL Tip Tuesday Video, especially helpful to parents trying to remember the words to all of the classic songs and finger plays!
This page will continue to be updated as more resources are made available.
