For Goodness Speech

Ask Ashley about Talking Tots a specialized "parent/caregiver and me" language development class for toddlers aged 15 months to 3 years old.

Located in New Milford, CT since it was established in 2017, For Goodness Speech is a speech therapy clinic that can help your child in a wide range of ways.

At For Goodness Speech, you can find speech and language therapy, feeding therapy, auditory oral therapy for hearing loss, instruction in social skills, play therapy, and parent education for children aged birth to 21 years of age.

One of the best things about For Goodness Speech is that while the child is the patient, families are always encouraged to participate in all speech therapy sessions to maximize generalization of skills outside of the therapy session.

At For Goodness Speech, you have the option to have an individual speech therapy session that takes place in the child’s home. After all, when the child is in the home, it will be easier to work with him or her in their most natural environment and also educate families and caregivers on strategies to use and practice between sessions to maximize generalization. However, in case you prefer, For Goodness Speech also offers teletherapy sessions that are held online. Due to COVID-19, many families are adopting this approach more often.

While For Goodness Speech used to have a Talking Tots Class available at the Children’s Movement Center in New Milford, CT, these classes have been suspended due to the new coronavirus. Nevertheless, it’s worth mentioning that these are a great opportunity for toddlers aged 15 months to 3 years old.

This is a 4-week class (consists of five 45 minute sessions) that incorporates music, toys, and games along with various strategies to help elicit your toddler’s language skills. Children engage in fun activities while parents or caregivers implement learned strategies with guidance from the speech therapist.

No matter if you notice that your child is in need of some additional support or if you just want to be proactive, For Goodness Speech is a great option.

What makes your speech therapy private practice unique?  How do you help your clients?

We provide in-home individualized care to our clients. Right now we are offering virtual sessions due to COVID-19. We are unique in that we offer Aural Rehabilitation and pediatric feeding therapy to children!

How do you involve families in speech therapy?

We provide in-home services and encourage parents/caregivers to be involved as much as they can so they can learn the strategies we are using and carry them over at home. This increases success and enables quicker generalization of skills.

What do you like most about being a Speech Pathologist?

I genuinely love helping others do some of the most important things in life (communicate, eat, etc.). It is a very rewarding job 🙂
