An Important Side Effect of Speech and Language Therapy - Confidence

There seems to be a theme that runs through my practise every school year.  One year it was Apraxia of Speech, another was all things related to AAC. That's one of the things I like so much about being an SLP is that you are always learning and no two years/clients/teams are the same. This year the theme is confidence.  While I have always known how important it was to build confidence, this year has shown me just how much.  Confidence in a child is huge.  It allows children to go out and explore more of the world,  take risks, make new friends or try to talk to new people.  In therapy and in school it will let them keep working on those aspects of their lives that can be really really really tricky.
