Toddler Talk with Jodi- New Group This Fall!

Please join experienced speech-language pathologist Jodi Newcomb for Cornerstone Speech Therapy’s newest group program this fall. Toddler Talk with Jodi will help parents and caregivers support speech skills and language development through story-telling, cooperative play, singing and conversation. You will learn that EVERY interaction with your toddler is meaningful! This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with your child while learning about language development and exploring any questions you may have with a certified speech-language pathologist.

Toddler Talk is for children ages 18-30 months old, and will meet Thursdays at 9:45-10:15 and 10:30-11:00 from September 22nd through October 27th, 2016 at Cornerstone Speech Therapy’s Powell office (7540 Sawmill Parkway, Suite A-2, Powell). The cost is $200 for the six-week session (Delaware County funding accepted). Please call Angi at (614) 973-9755 to register (maximum of 5 tots per session, call soon to reserve your spot). We look forward to speaking with you!

Therapy Tip Of The Month: Spatial Concepts

Therapy Tip Of The Month: Spatial Concepts

Do you have a cup and an action figure/little people doll/army man/etc…? Than you have the supplies to work on spatial concepts in a FUN way with your kiddo or client!

By placing the toy inside, on top, next to, beside, behind, in front of or outside the cup, you are teaching your child these basic concepts that are important to receptive and expressive language skills. Remember, therapy can be a lot of fun, and shouldn’t necessarily require fancy tools or equipment. Be sure to ask your child’s speech therapist about ways to work on their goals at home between visits. You are your child’s best teacher!13417616_1086061591440385_507734711649731894_n

Former Client Turned Summer Volunteer

Say hello to our student volunteer for the summer! She was a former client of Janelle’s back when she was just six years old, and now she is now pursuing her own career as a speech therapist. If you see her around the office this summer, be sure to say hi! 13343113_1077490092297535_9213033833495125559_n

Therapy Disguised as Play

Therapy Disguised as Play

When your mom is a speech therapist, it’s speech therapy 24/7! But luckily, that really means therapy disguised as fun. Play is the best way for toddlers to learn!

Here, little Lila is making a contact paper collage on a rainy afternoon. We love this activity because:
a) it’s EASY (contact paper and ripped up news ads were what we used)
b) it’s novel and new, AKA fun for an 18 month old
c) there are SO many opportunities to work on language… such as labeling pictures that we saw, modeling verbs and location phrases (on/off/stick/touch), and following directions (“find the bunny and stick it on”)
d) it’s cheap!

Could you see yourself trying this at home with your toddler? Or in your therapy room? For more ideas like this, follow us on Facebook (search Cornerstone Speech Therapy LLC)! 13343122_1079378912108653_4757781688807633577_n

May is Better Hearing & Speech Month!

May is Better Hearing & Speech Month!

Cornerstone Speech Therapy is celebrating May as Better Hearing & Speech Month! We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the services we offer as we look toward the future. Although the office in Gahanna will close at the end of this month (due to unforeseen building issues), we will continue to provide individual speech and language evaluations and therapy at our office in Powell and in the comfort of your home. And stay tuned for more information on our popular toddler language group, Talkin’ Tunes!

Cornerstone knows that early identification and treatment of speech and language disorders makes a big difference in a child’s prognosis and success. Not sure if your child needs a full evaluation or not? Please call us to schedule a FREE screening to determine if an in-depth evaluation and treatment may be necessary.

Relationships are key to who we are at CST. We want to create positive relationships with every family we work with, and with our community partnerships in the central Ohio region. We are proud to say that during the past year we have partnered with Central Ohio Behavioral Consulting and WeJoySing. We are also proud sponsors of the Olentangy Braves Little League team and the Classic Eagles try-out! And in April, Cornerstone Speech Therapist Bridget Chapman represented CST in the FRIENDS Stutter-Step 5k (FRIENDS National Association of Young People Who Stutter)!

It can seem scary when you suspect your child may have a speech or language delay; we can help. If you have been on the fence about scheduling a screening or evaluation, what better time than now during Better Hearing & Speech Month? Please call (614-973-9755) or email (info@cornerstonespeechtherapy.com) us today with any questions you may have. We look forward to helping your family!

Celebrating Success

Celebrating Success

At Cornerstone Speech Therapy, we feel it is important to celebrate every success a child and family experiences, no matter how big or small! Here is a recent success story from SLP and CST owner Janelle Pickens:

“This picture captures the pure joy I felt as my little Brayden, age 3, told me “bye” for the first time as he left a respite program at my church. His family has been working on this for over a year and it was truly a moment to celebrate! His mother said that he said “bye” 2-3 times this week. His father is ready to start on “hi” now.”

Beautiful story and picture, Janelle!
