Teach Back: What is it and Why does it matter?

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!

Exceptionally Positive Experience with Ms Alyssa


Andrew has had an exceptionally positive experience with Ms Alyssa. She has been able to challenge him to achieve and reach great goals with a personal, kind, gentle relationship with him.

my son went from non-verbal to being right on target at age level


My son was 20 months when we started at Community Speech and was non-verbal. He was diagnosed with apraxia and I was told that they weren't sure he would speak. In 10 months my son went from non-verbal to being right on target at age level. He is now talking clearly and was just released from therapy. I cannot thank everyone at CSS enough, especially Brooklyn. I've started my daughter at CSS because I'm so happy with their service.

Everyone is so nice and patient with my child


Community Speech Services is amazing! Everyone is so nice and patient with my child. My son looks forward to coming and has grown so much since the first time he came. His speech is now intelligible and is emerging into sentences. We couldn't do this without you.

all the staff for caring so much


I received custody of my grandson, Sonny in November 2013. He was very delayed in his speech, so i called CSS and they started seeing him in January of 2014. I can see so much improvement. His therapist Beth is so pleasant and works wonders with him. I would like to thank Alyssa and all the staff for caring so much about individuals who need a little extra help with everyday things that some of us take for granted
