CCST participated at the C3 Church Special Needs Easter Egg Hunt for Special Needs Children/Families on April 4, 2015. We provided information to families including self-screening tools for children 12 months to 6 years of age, information about our summer camps, Educational and Behavioral Resources and Speech Therapy at CCST. Most of the families that came to the table were currently receiving services through the public school system but felt that additional services, privately, would help their child overcome their deficits faster. We agree! At Capitol City Speech Therapy we work together with the family as their “coach” during each therapy session. It’s important the family understands how to use a variety of skilled interventions to help their child learn a new skill or concept.
