The concept of “teach back” is not new! Think of any review session from school and there probably was some type of “teach back” moment. You have a “teacher” and a “learner.” The teacher first explains. Then the learner describes it back in his or her own words. A study showed this was 95% effective in helping families and caregivers learn new information! So the next time you are speaking with your child’s (or your own!) teacher, doctor, speech language pathologist, or other professional, try “teaching back” the information to make sure everyone is on the same page working towards the same goals!
