Parents and Children Communicating
We offer a Parents and Children Communicating (PACC) program to everyone waiting for services. This program focuses on educating parents and caregivers. The staff teaches them specific techniques to use while interacting with their child. Sometimes by changing the way parents and caregivers interact with the child, the need for direct therapy is eliminated.
Join us for Wednesday evening PACC programs, February 25th -
April 1, 2015 from 5PM - 7PM.
The Scottish Rite Clinic Staff invites you and your family to attend
a 6 week parent education program that will result in the
enhancement of your child’s communication skills.
(Download Brochure for more details.)
The PACC program is committed to helping families better understand
how speech, language and hearing skillsnormally develop and what to
expect from your child.
The staff wants to help you understand how disordered communication
skills can affect your child and give you everyday suggestions to
help your child develop these needed skills.
The staff will help you learn and use new strategies in your
everyday routines to enhance your child’s communication development.
The staff will act as a resource for your questions related to
services in the community.
Sample topics for the evenings may include:
Speech and language milestones
The impact of middle ear infections and hearing loss on language
Suggested techniques for developing language
Adding language to daily routines
Importance of reading and music for language development
Brain development in the first 3 years

Discussions will be driven by parents’ need for information in areas
that concern them.
