Natural environment speech therapy refers to speech and language therapy services being given in the client’s natural communication environments; whether it is his or her home, school, or after school care facility.
1. Decreased “warm-up” time from when speech therapy starts until it becomes productive
2. It significantly reduces the child’s need to learn to generalize, or carryover skills learned in treatment to his or her natural communication environments because the skills are being taught in those environments
3. Because receiving speech and language therapy services are a positive, hassle-free experience; no more rush-hour traffic trying to get children to after-school therapy and then home to make dinner.
