Kate did not want to do speech therapy for the summer, but I thought that it would be a good thing for her and for the students. Many speech therapists don't work with stuttering kids/adults, so this is a good opportunity for them to learn what to do and practice. The parents get to watch speech therapy from behind that special glass, like police offices use. I took a picture of Kate and Kendra working hard. Kendra was having her watch herself on the video and see if she could hear disfluencies. This was something that she has never done before, but I think that it has helped!
This has been our 3rd summer with Kate at speech therapy. Faith also attended for one summer when she was 4 or 5. It was great! I can't say enough about how much we love ISU! It is so great that the students are motivated to work hard and have their students improve. It's a win-win.
Kate also asked if Myah would come that day and watch. Which was sweet!!! Here she is enjoying the hour of speech therapy. She really did love watching her and being there with me!
Thank you for being such a good friend Myah!!! We love you and you are beautiful!!!
