Recognizing Speech and Hearing Professionals Everywhere

Too often, we forget to acknowledge that those in the special needs community are the true warriors, working to bring light and hope to the lives of children with special needs every day.  Along with American Speech-Hearing Association’s (ASHA) Better Hearing and Speech month, throughout the month of May, Special Learning is recognizing the efforts of speech-language pathologists and audiologists everywhere.

For those of you who don’t know, a speech pathologist is the professional who diagnoses and treats a variety of communication and feeding/swallowing disorders. An audiologist diagnoses and treats disorders associated with hearing, including fitting hearing aids and cochlear implants.

We are steadfast in our ongoing support of the speech and hearing impaired community, as well as those who assist them in improving their lives. As part of our commitment to helping speech pathologists and audiologists in their mission, we are offering a HUGE 90 percent discount on our highly effective communication app. The Communicating Basic Needs App, better known as ComApp.3 provides a fun and easy way for professionals to assist children with speech and hearing difficulties to express their basic wants and needs.  

From now till the end of May, get ComApp.3 for an iOS, Android, or Kindle Fire device for just $4.99.

SLP & ABA Collaboration Series: Using Collaboration to Generate Best Outcomes… Quicker


Parent Waitlist Program

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
