Lilian Tsi Stielstra's Why

Modifications for Mobilization

How New Technology Supports Speech-Language Therapy

Now, more than ever technology is becoming an integral part of speech-language therapy. And because of limitations to insurance coverage for speech therapy, its importance is likely to increase.

If you intentionally inflict physical or emotional pain on another person, guilt is an appropriate emotional response. If you have not intentionally injured another person, you may be experiencing feelings of guilt that are not appropriate to the situation.

Getting more therapy is not as simple as asking nicely. You must understand your insurance benefits and discuss them knowledgeably with your insurer.
