I recently had a discussion with a parent about different service providers in the Kansas City area. Because Bringing Therapy Home offers private speech and language therapy, she was curious about my thoughts and opinions on other service providers in the area. This is what I shared with her – There are absolutely amazing therapists out there. Instead of therapists feeling competitive, it makes much more sense to me for us to be collaborative and encouraging of each other. I would absolutely love to have a family choose Bringing Therapy Home to address their child’s needs, but, if a family chooses to go with a different service provider, that’s a positive too because the child is getting the services they need. What matters most is your child and your child’s needs. If you are looking for a service provider to provide private therapy services for your child, meet with a few different providers. Hear the approach they use, their philosophy, and how they would address your child’s needs. Your child should be placed with the professional best suited for your child – that means taking a lot of different factors under consideration. You have options, and I encourage all families to explore their options.
