Success Story: Joseph

Joseph, age 3, was referred to NOSHC for a delay in speech-language communication. He has been a client of speech-language pathology assistant Verónica V. since early January. Verónica is a bilingual (Spanish-English) speech-language pathology assistant and has been working at NOSHC since 2010.

In just these short months, Joseph’s behavior and speech-language skills have improved dramatically. One of Joseph’s major improvements has been his attending skills. During sessions earlier this year, Joseph had difficulty paying attention and would become easily distracted. Now, Joseph is able to participate and attend fully to each activity Verónica creates for them.

Their sessions include a combination of puzzle activities, songs, and Joseph’s favorite, bubbles. Using these activities, Joseph is able to work on following directions, imitating words, and he is starting to use sign language for words. Verónica said that due to his improvements behaviorally, they have really begun to work on speech and language skills that will help him communicate each day. Keep up the great work Joseph!

Historia de éxito: Joseph

Joseph, edad 3, es un cliente de NOSHC y trabaja con la terapista de lenguaje Verónica Vadell. Él fue remitido a NOSHC por dificultades de habla y empezó terapia en Enero. Verónica es una terapista bilingüe de lenguaje en inglés y español y ha trabajado en NOSHC desde 2010.

Dentro de tres cortos meses, Joseph ha mejorado dramáticamente en su habilidad de lenguaje y comportamiento. Uno de los progresos notables es su aptitud a prestar atención en las sesiones con Verónica. En las sesiones pasadas, Joseph tuvo dificultades enfocado en las actividades. Ahora Joseph participa en cada actividad de la sesión.

Las sesiones incluyen una combinación de rompe cabezas, canciones, y el favorito de Joseph, las burbujas. Con estas actividades, Joseph puede trabajar en siguiendo instrucciones, imitando palabras, y él está comenzando a usar lenguaje de signos para algunas palabras. Los progresos en comportamiento y lenguaje ayudarán Joseph con comunicación cada día. ¡Buen trabajo Joseph!
