Down Syndrome Speech Therapy from Home - Podcast

Join Better Speech on the new episode of Gettin' Down with Down Syndrome Podcast, where we discuss the importance of early intervention when it comes to speech therapy services for children with Down Syndrome. Down syndrome and speech therapy often go hand in hand. We also share tips on pronouncing difficult words correctly, encouraging parents to make a list of common words their child mispronounces in order to help them learn proper pronunciation.

Episode highlights


Early intervention is crucial. Children's brain is developing and that entire system is continuing to develop. So when it comes to speech therapy services, the earlier the better.  As humans, we are natural communicators. And for little ones, if they're not starting to talk, if they're not starting to show indicators that they are wanting to communicate, we want to know what else is going on, what else is there? 

The important thing is to get in early, get an evaluation, get an assessment early, and then we can determine if those recommendations for speech therapy services are warranted. And that makes all the difference. 

Considering whether speech therapy is right for your child?

Book your free consultation

If your child mispronounces certain words, you can manipulate certain situations and manipulate that opportunity for children to notice: "Oh, you're saying it wrong"

When you manipulate that opportunity, you're allowing them to be the authority. And they love that because they get to be in charge for a little bit and they get to be the one "Oh you're saying it wrong. I know how to say it."

To get the most out of Down Syndrome speech therapy, write a list of certain words or family member names that are really difficult for your children. The more your SLP knows, the more they can help: they can tailor sessions to work on specific challenging areas.


If you are looking for additional support for a child that works with a speech therapist in school or considering a flexible online solution to fit into your and your child's schedule, Better Speech is here to help. At Better Speech, we offer online speech therapy services convenient for you and tailored to your child's individual needs. Our services are affordable and effective - get Better Speech now.

I'm not an English native speaker and I wanted to improve my speech. Better Speech onboarding process is AWESOME, I met with different people before being matched with an AMAZING Therapist, Christina. My assigned therapist created a safe place for me to be vulnerable and made all the sessions fun and helpful. Thanks to her, I received great feedback from my clients.
