🤷🏽❓ Frequently Asked Questions ❓🤷🏻♀️
🗣️❓Is this Speech Therapy? Is this an alternative to Speech Therapy?
No! We are not speech therapists BUT RATHER, we put into action the tools and strategies you may get in speech therapy. Where the therapist is the teacher, we are the tutors!
Whether you 𝐀𝐑𝐄 𝐈𝐍 speech therapy, 𝐖𝐄𝐑𝐄 𝐈𝐍 speech therapy or 𝐇𝐀𝐕𝐄 𝐍𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑 had speech therapy, we can help your voice and communication improve!
🚫🎵🎙️I am not a good singer. Is this a singing class?
No! This is a communication, conversation and voice use class. We use music as part of our class plans to help words come out, to increase volume and clarity, to focus our attention and work our cognition.
The music we choose is upbeat, positive and hopefully familiar, which has psychological benefits, too. You can be muted whenever you like, and you can speak along in rhythm without ever singing a note, if you wish!
🚫 💻 ❓I am not tech savvy. Is it hard to join class online?
The platforms that help us meet online are getting simpler and easier all the time. You don't have to be a tech expert to join us from your computer, tablet or even your smartphone. We can help you if you feel usure or get stuck.
📽️👎I am uncomfortable on camera. What can I do?
You can join in without your camera on, if you feel more comfortable. We think though, that once you see how small the videos become once you are in class with your classmates, you won't feel very self-conscious. We think too, as you get to know your classmates and experience the warm, supportive nature of class, you will be more at ease.
