    Could anyone post here the names of great therapists, whether physical, occupational or speech.

    I have a child that needs extensive therapy and receives EI. But I’m not happy with their doing. They aren’t aggressive in their approach when it’s clear that my child needs aggressive therapy,

    I will research the names that you post – I don’t mind if they’re private and cost money.

    This is a very serious issue and could be the difference in my child’s future.

    Thank You.

    May I respectfully suggest you call Yedei Chesed in MOnsey, which deals with all kinds of therapies for all children of special needs.

    They are the leaders in their field.

    What area?


    fkelly was on the mark with asking what area you live in. As an SLP I can tell you that the therapeutic relationship is a shidduch that requires both sides work the relationship. It is important that you make sure that your child’s therapists have had adequate training and experience in the area of your child’s needs. Unfortunately, there are many therapists out there who have taken the shortest possible route to get their degrees and have trained in therapy mills that do not provide adequate supervision. Finally, be realistic with regard to your expectations. Therapy is not like taking an antibiotic where you see results in 7 to 10 days. It is an ongoing process that may sometimes seem to stagnate and then there are times where goal after goal is met.

    eemaslp1- what do you consider “the shortest possible route to getting a degree”. You need certain qualifications in order to even get your MA and even more to get your CCCs. there is no fast route. qualifications are qualifications. speeding up the undergrad process does not affect what is needed for proper SLP education. you still need the same pre-reqs as everyone else.


    Thanks but I meant like where does she live 🙂


    I too am an SLP and agree with what Eema has to say. in addition make sure you have an open dialogue with the therapists. What are your child’s areas of difficulty (from both your perspectives)? How are they trying to address these difficulties? How long have they been working with your child? Have them explain what they are doing. Often it may look like they are doing nothing but they might be establishing rapport, teaching play and social skills or first addressing any issues that might need to be addressed (ie attention span, compliance etc). if you’re still not satisfied it is every parents right to find the best therapist for their child. Feel free to add additional info and I will gladly try to help.
