  SESSIONS - video conference call with expert STM coaching

Sensory TriggerTMSpeech Recovery Coaching Session

This speech coaching session teaches you the latest Sensory TriggerTM techniques so you can do this with your family member, or caregiver. During the session we learn how to do the Sensory Trigger and practice it together. Sessions show you how to trigger speech away from any computer or assistive communication device. Sessions can expand and apply the content of the programs, but they go far beyond that. The sessions actually cover a whole different set of content and activities and will give you a personalized speech recovery plan. When you reach a plateau, the sessions are the best way to show you how to get to the "next level" and beyond. The focus is on triggering new speech in the moment and learning to say the easiest, most functional speech for everyday life and how to unblock speech. Some examples: feelings, actions, needs, expressions, requests and more. Speech is triggered with a therapist or partner working with the touch sensory system. More advanced sessions include how to trigger speech on your own, how to go beyond repeating and how to do independent practice using your computer or tablet. Sessions are 40 - 60 minutes and include a personal follow-up email summarizing what was accomplished during the session as well as the assigned speech practice activities. Download of Skype or access to another video call system is free. Let's get you on the schedule! Order by phone.

These positive statements increase motivation while overcoming negative beliefs. Seven different levels with text and sound take you from single “core words” to 2-word, 3-word, and on up to 7-11 word sentences.
