Have a few questions?
Have a few questions? Before your first visit to a speech therapist? We’re here to help guide you through, every step of the way! (Besides, what website would be complete without an FAQs page)?
Write down things that may be concerning you so that you don’t forget.
Write down a list of questions.
Look up information about your or your child’s concerns (please see our helpful links). This will help you know what to talk about with your Speech Pathologist and/or Orofacial Myologist.
Make sure you read over and fill out the initial intake paperwork thoroughly so you are prepared to ask any questions during your visit.
Use the “ASK ME 3″ questions guideline:
- What is my main concern?
- What do I need to do?
- Why is it important for me to do this?
Ask the questions that you wrote down before your visit.
Ask the therapist to write down any terms you didn’t understand.
Find out contact information in case you think of questions after your visit.
Go over your notes to see if you understand what was said.
Call or email your therapist if you can think of any further questions.
See if you can find out more about what you were told – do a little research on your own.
