Please join us this Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. PST or 7:00 p.m. EST live with host Denise Messenger.  Her special guest is Rachel Betzen, M.A.  We will be discussing speech therapy for children.  In 2005 Rachel started her private practice around speech-language therapy and reading programs. Just as she was ready to quit her part-time job and work for herself full-time, she and her husband were in a car accident. Soon after, she began to develop many neurological symptoms, including chronic pain, and she lost the ability to walk for eight months. Shortly after that, another doctor diagnosed her with Lyme disease. She struggled through the illness to continue working with the children in her private practice.  She provided speech and language therapy within the context of literacy and direct multi-sensory reading programs for the school-age children. Rachel’s therapy and reading programs are individualized to each student. They all receive immediate and distinctive feedback. Also, therapy is done within what Rachel calls each student’s “Zone of Proximal Development.” This means that each child’s therapy was right at their level.   Join us for more details!  You asked for it and we deliver!
