It’s said that being a parent is like watching your heart walk around outside of your body. We share our children’s joy and excitement—and we also feel their struggles as deeply as if they were our own.


As a parent, you only want the best for your child. So, when you notice they’re having difficulty with their speech or language skills, you spring into action to support them (just like the superhero they already believe you are). Maybe you’ve noticed your child has difficulty understanding what’s said to them. At first, you thought it might be a hearing issue—after all, kids are always getting ear infections, right?

Therapy Tree Tip: For Parents

How "Floor Time" Can be Beneficial in Therapy

"Parents can use withholding techniques to help their children expand their language and make requests. If they have a favorite toy or food item withhold it until the child request it using sign language or simple language like "want food or more toy."

— Makenzie Moore, SLPA | Glendale Clinic

Storytime: Book of the Month!

But First, We Nap by David Miles

Featured Local Giveaway's

Cirque Mechanics donated two family packs of tickets, both pairs were gifted to our patients.

Cirque Mechanics is a fun and family friendly circus show with a bicycle twist to it! It is when a wacky bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes. Accompanied by high flying trampoline artists, aerialists, trick cyclists and contortionists, he repairs more than broken pieces, he creates wondrous machines and inspires the cyclist in all of us to become a circus mechanic. Creative Director, Chris Lashua, came to Las Vegas with Cirque du Soleil in 1992. Before that he spent most of his career on a BMX bike or inside a German Wheel. His fascination with bicycles and passion for cycling are evidenced in this production.

Every two weeks we have a therapist or special guest read a children's book and post it on our Youtube channel. Did you know reading books to your children or them listening to a book reading improves their listening skills? The experts at Scholastic explain that listening is a skill kids must acquire before they can read themselves. They suggest that books on tape are a great addition to reading one-on-one with your child. These often provide entertainment value, too, like silly voices, music, and other embellishments. Every month we give away five of our Storytime books to a patient and each reader signs each book with a loving and special message. Make sure to subscribe to our Youtube Channel to stay alerted on our latest video!
