Lauren Blake presented to approximately 20 foster parents regarding social communication skills. The presentation outlined what social communication is and what makes it difficult (including behavioral and emotional factors), as well as two specific interventions commonly used to teach about social behaviors: "Social Thinking" and "Social Stories." Handouts were provided regarding social communication milestones and strategies for improving social skills. 

April 2015

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.

Members of CCST contacted state representatives to support H.R. 1246, the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Act.

H.R. 1246 would expand the EHDI program to young children; require the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to assist in the recruitment, retention, education, and training of qualified personnel and health care providers; and establish a postdoctoral fellowship program through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to foster research and development in the area of early hearing detection and intervention. The bill is currently awaiting action in the Senate.

Spring 2007

Capitol City Speech therapists participated in this important event:

On Monday, April 2nd, 2007 40 ASHA members, who were attending the annual ASHA SLP conference on health care, visited their Senators and Representatives and asked them to cosponsor H.R.1774 and S.45. H.R. 1774 and S.45 would allow SLPs in private practice to treat Medicare patients and seek reimbursement from Medicare for those services. Further, Medicare beneficiaries would have greater choice in where to receive SLP services. This is especially important for beneficiaries in rural and minority communities who often need to travel a great distance to obtain SLP services.

UPDATE: The bill has been approved and goes into effect July 1st, 2009!
