Annette Hines, host of Parenting Impossible – The Special Needs Survival Podcast starts the podcast honoring the memory of disability advocate, and mom Julie Beckett, who passed at the age of 72. Julie is a champion in the disability community who fought to allow children with disabilities to live at home while receiving care covered by Medicaid. The Katie Beckett Waiver, named after her daughter, has changed so many families’ lives for the better.
Since our topic in this episode is about changing people’s lives, Annette Hines talks with Lenora Edwards of BetterSpeech.com. about using this innovative virtual speech and language service right in the comfort of your own home! Lenora Edwards is a speech and language pathologist along with over 150 other licensed therapists with an average of 10 years of experience, available nationwide. BetterSpeech.com offers a free 30-minute consultation on how BetterSpeech.com might help you or your loved one. The disability community has been greatly impacted by mask-wearing and working with a speech and language pathologist can bring about progress if you cannot find a pathologist in your area for a young child or elder this can be an incredible resource. Areas they offer help with can include voice disorders, stuttering and fluency, reading readiness, speech sound disorders and learning to create proper facial expressions. In addition, their clients also have access to a “practice library” so adults and little ones can practice on their own what they are learning in the virtual therapy sessions. So if you are interested in getting these services (which can be covered by most health insurances) please click on BetterSpeech.com.
