This 2-page handout can be used to help speech therapy clients and their families understand the purpose and process of comprehensive speech therapy.
- The 3Es of speech therapy are EASE, EDUCATE, and EMPOWER.
- The 3Cs of speech therapy are CONFIDENCE, COMPETENCE, and CHANGE.
This resource may be especially useful for explaining why speech therapy incorporates "non-traditional" activities like counseling, social-emotional goals, and experiential work that isn't drill-based.
