Good to Feel Appreciated

“I refer many families to SFS Therapies because they don’t have to wait to be seen, and I repeatedly receive excellent feedback on how helpful they are.  I enjoy working with their staff and find them to be astounding in areas such as customer service and parent support.

I will continue to refer my consumers to them, working as a team. I appreciate that SFS Therapies contributes to cover the gap of bilingual services in Southern Nevada by doing a remarkable effort reaching out to uninsured, undeserved and low income families that has children with special needs.  Thank you for supporting all these children to have a better quality of life!”

Early Intervention is Key

Language is one of the first things children learn to sequence. Most of them realize that saying certain phrases or words used in proper-conjunction can ensure them positive feedback almost always.

To give you a for instance, “I am thirsty” usually prompts the parent to bring them something to drink.  On the other hand, “thirsty am I” is likely to cause confusion- even if you’re the biggest of Star Wars fans.  As with most things, learning the fundamentals of spoken language and the order in which it is carried out- ultimately trains our mind to properly sequence additional notions and behavior.

The fact is that many children face dilemma’s with spoken language early on.  Perhaps some might say their words slower than others. Perhaps others may use a form of a word incorrectly—“I has wented to the potty.”

In the absence of early intervention (or detection) we are could be creating hurdles.  It’s wonderful if little Ben is the first to raise his hand in class, but if he’s pouring his cereal into the gallon of milk during show and tell…. His parents may want to have a look at that. Providing you with the means to achieve as well as the order in which to do so.  We’re #NotYourAverageClinic
