Even though school is out for the summer, that doesn’t mean your child stops learning. It’s not a vacation from everything! The summer months can be a time to relax and enjoy those beautiful Hawaiian beaches, but it can also be an opportunity to capitalize on extra time for speech and language. Children learn well from playing and it’s an excellent way to have fun while teaching your children.

Often times, children are trying to tell adults something through their behavior. It is my firm view that behavior is a form of communication and that what is perceived as “bad” behavior is really a sensory need not being met. A child who has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), or some other overlapping disorders, can have difficulty expressing exactly those needs.
