Home-schooling, social distancing, and adjusting to new life amid COVID-19 is tough. However, for children with speech-language delays and communication disorders, this time away from school can be especially difficult. Therefore, we at Charlotte Speech and Hearing Center want to provide resources for your family during this critical time.
CSHC has also pivoted our services to ensure that we continue to serve you, while doing our part to guard patient safety. We are proud to continue providing speech-language services at this time by offering tele-therapy, parent consults and coaching.
Thanks to a grant provided by the COVID-19 Response Fund, a partnership to support Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community members impacted by Coronavirus, we are now able to offer these services to the entire community at no or greatly reduced cost. Our expert SLPs are happy to offer supplemental services to children receiving virtual I.E.P. services or who are unable to access their normal provider. If you are interested in scheduling a virtual or in-person appointment, please fill out the Contact Form at the bottom of this page.
In addition, our team has put together the following list of resources, videos, blogs, and worksheets to assist your family during this time.
