Emmerson’s Therapy Plus Support
Emerson has been accessing Speech Pathology supports, and Educator and Physiotherapy supports at Kurrajong Therapy Plus.
“Emerson has already come such a long way with his communication in such a short time and it has reduced his own frustration levels immensely, and Taylah has been with us every step of the way.”
2-year-old Emerson has been accessing Speech Pathology supports at Kurrajong Therapy Plus Wagga Wagga for around 5 months, He has also been accessing Educator and Physiotherapy supports prior to that.
Emerson’s Speech Pathology has been focused on his unique feeding concerns and assessing and implementing strategies to ensure his mealtimes are safe as possible. His therapy sessions have also focused on increasing Emerson’s communication skills through Key Word Sign. He is now consistently using 5+ signs to communicate his wants and needs in different environments.
Emerson is always happy to come to Kurrajong Therapy Plus and enjoys engaging with bubbles during his sessions. He also loves to dance to his favourite songs of the week and likes to end each session by giving Taylah his Speech Pathologist ‘knuckles’ while saying goodbye.
“Taylah has been an amazing addition to our team and I wouldn’t dream of going elsewhere. Emerson and his older brother absolutely adore Taylah and are always willing to show her love in their own unique ways, whether that’s a cuddle, knuckles, or requesting Pokémon uno. Emerson has already come such a long way with his communication in such a short time and it has reduced his own frustration levels immensely, and Taylah has been with us every step of the way.
I honestly don’t think anything I could say would portray how grateful I am to have the Kurrajong team in our lives, so thank you will have to suffice. Thank you for helping us when we needed the help, thank you for continuing to help us as we go through each stage of the kids’ lives. Just, thank you.”
“Going to Kurrajong doesn’t feel like another appointment, it feels like we are just visiting friends or family.”
