What do you get at the first session
During the evaluation, there will be direct and indirect testing:
1. Indirect Testing Indirect testing may sometimes look more like an informal conversation, observation, or playtime, rather than an evaluation; but what the SLP is actually doing is using this time to learn more about how your child communicates.
2. Direct Testing Direct testing is more structured and you can clearly tell that your child is being evaluated. It typically involves communication exercises, such as: - Naming items; - Answering the SLP's questions; - Pointing to pictures in a testing manual;
The rule of thumb for direct testing is that the SLP continues until the child answers multiple questions incorrectly in a row. So don't worry if your child isn't getting every question right.
During direct testing, you can sit back, relax and watch carefully how your child participates in the session. If the SLP needs your help they will call on you.
Afterward what follows is feedback on what happened in the session, how your child did and maybe the SLP will ask you some follow up questions to clarify a few things.
" The speech therapist completely suits me, the classes are intense and exciting for the child, taking into account his interests and desires. The result will be seen ia a quite long-term perspective, since we do not study at home on our own, unfortunately. "
" We really like it, the child is engaged with pleasure and independently without our supervision, he tries to repeat the exercises in his free time, and is proud of his successes. I can't say about the result now, as I haven't tracked the last time, I'll write later "
" We are pleased with our speech therapist. My kid started to pronounce R correctly. With another speech therapist we haven't achieved that result after 6 months. And here we did it during the third session. My kid loves the sessions, so we continue. "
" We were so impressed with Bubu Learn! My daughter is 5 years old and an at-home learner due to COVID-19. This format was a wonderful, comfortable opportunity to asses her speech and development while also being really fun for her! Our therapist Sofiya was warm and playful, so much so that Wren didn't even seem to notice she was being evaluated! She used toys, stuffed animals and flashcards, which Wren really loved. The half-hour session was just long enough to keep her attention while also giving the therapist all the information she needed. "
" We found Lisa, a wonderful, professional speech therapist. She easily and quickly found an approach for our daughter. Nicole looks forward to each lesson, carefully reciting all the exercises both during online classes and in her free time. And the results were not long in coming. After 6 classes, not only me, but also those around me began to notice our successes. Finally, our daughter is making the sound Z and sometimes S, which were previously impossible for her to pronounce. An unexpectedly pleasant side effect was our child asking us to give her copybooks and her desire to learn letters and learn to read. "
" Hello! Our speech therapist Sofiya is just a wonderful teacher! literally from the first lessons I found a common language with the child and picked up a "key" for him! The child (3.5 years old) is active and not assiduous and doesn't always want to study, especially online, but Sofiya magically turns everything into a game and he himself didn't notice how he completed all the exercises and it was time to say goodbye) She always has good work with parents - she will guide, advise, give visual materials. She sets homework, I always have speech therapy games from her, so during my free time I can be helpful to my son as well We, as parents, noticed that the baby speaks much more, and all our friends noticed that the child speaks more clearly, and now he is not afraid of new words and new acquaintances, he has become more confident in himself!) Many THANKS to Sofiya! "
" Hello! Personaly speaking, I'm very pleased with the speech therapist. Lisa found an approach, knows how to laugh and respects the interests of my child. Lessons are always varied. My son doesn't like gymnastics with me, but he won't get away from Lisa. The son is having fun and enjoys every time new heroes in the app come to him. I see a significant improvement in the sounds S and Z. We are working on F and R. It is difficult for me to motivate the child to classes, he doesn't really see the benefits of classes, he is lazy. But having a good with Lisa - and I see progress. And this is the main thing. ☝ Until we growl and hiss, we will work! We follow you on instagram, take a note. "
" Good afternoon! We got the super best speech therapist !!! The relationship with the child has already been built on the 2nd lesson, we have very good results. We began to build sentences, we say words correctly, and most important, Sofiya taught us to pronounce the letters. But there is still a long work to be done until we bring everything to perfection. Adam is really waiting for Sofiya to call him and start a lesson with him. He prepares very much for the lesson and enjoys doing his homework. "
" I am incredibly happy reached out to Bubulearn! We work with a wonderful speech therapist, professional - Lisa, who easily and quickly found an approach to our girl. Nicole is looking forward to each lesson, carefully repeats all exercises both during a session and during her free time. And the result didn't not long ito come. After six sessions, not only me, but those around me began to notice our successes. Finally, we have the sound Th, R, which previously could not be reproduced. An unexpectedly pleasant effect was the child's request to give her copybooks and the desire to learn English letters and learn to read. Our English language competes with Hebrew, so this request is especially valuable to me. I am very grateful to you for your help! And of course, we do not stop there, we continue, because there is still much work to do "
" I am very pleased with our speech therapist Lisa and the result that I see today! All lessons are held in very light and playful way. Despite the fact that the lesson lasts 30 minutes, during this time Lisa manages to cover a very wide scope of work. The lesson turns out to be very rich and varied, and tmy son is interested for all 30 minutes. The relationship between my child and Lisa are full with trust. Every lesson my child expresses a desire to share something with her. For example, how he spent the weekend or what kind of craft he did with his grandmother. "
" Before I started the sessions with you, we had 2 sad experiences of working with speech therapists. Our speech therapist Sofiya besides her knowledge has a huge advantage in working with children, she holds them emotionally throughout the lesson. For me it is very important that she can playfully move to the right direction so that the child, even unconciously, does what is required for classes. Sofiya is a super pro, she is emotionally investing into lessons and it is worth a lot. I am absolutely satisfied with the work, there can be no better optopn for us"

Frequently asked questions
Why do the sessions last for 30 minutes?
20-50 minutes are considered to be within the normal attention span for children regardless of their age. During this time a child can concentrate without getting tired.
What if my kid won't sit still in front of the monitor?
We will give you some advice and shape our program in a way that your kid gets involved in the session and doesn't get distracted with other things.
How can a child learn online without personal contact?
Not all speech challenges need personal contact and logopedic massage. Most speech disturbances are connected with undeveloped listening attention and memory. Games that we use during our sessions are devoted to correcting this problem and do not demand personal contact.
Can I take several sessions?
Yes, your discount depends on the quantity of lessons you take. After the diagnostics the speech therapist will create recommendations for a program of sessions and you'll be able to pay for all of the sessions at once.
Do I have to attend the sessions?
You will have to help your child to adapt to the online sessions and motivate your child. Then you'll be able to watch the process from the sidelines and ask questions to the therapist as needed.
How long does it take to improve a child's speech?
The amount of time needed to work with a child depends upon the speech problem and on the complexity of the case. Correction may take from one up to 3-6 months.
Does my child have to be able to speak English?
Yes, as he will deal with an English-speaking speech therapist and will need to be able to understand her. If you need a Russian-speaking speech therapist leave a request on our website with Russian-speaking specialists:: ru.bubulearn.com
