Teacher Appreciation Day!

Here at Sound, Melissa and I have the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing teachers! It is our goal to reach out to each kiddos teacher to learn more about their academic life, and to assist the teacher in best working with their student to increase their communication skills. Over the past year and a half, we have worked with some of the best. We have had teachers make accommodations in the classroom to help children with hearing loss better hear, we've had teachers provided extra after school support, to ensure understanding of new classroom materials, and we've had teachers make visuals for students who need a little extra support in learning a new subject. 

Today we celebrate each and every teacher we've had the joy of working with. You help us better assess and treat our patients, and we thank you for the extra effort you put in to help support them in their day to day activities.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Day from all of us here at Sound!
