Why Choose Out & About?

Out & About Speech Therapy services are provided in your home or in another designated location in the community such as a local park or playground. This approach may be beneficial for several reasons:

  • Your home and community are where your child has the greatest opportunity for learning. Whether your child is working on articulation, language, social skills, or listening, the therapist will take advantage of the environment around them to find the most functional skills and targets that can be practiced every day.
  • Consistent visits help children to develop their skills more efficiently. Home visits with flexible scheduling allow you to keep up with therapy sessions more easily.
  • Make every moment count. With therapy that involves you, the child's caregiver, learning continues even when the therapist leaves.
