Build Confidence When Providing Information for Parents with Andi Putt

Do you need some advice on how to effectively provide important information to parents?

Some parents have a hard time understanding or helping their children. Luckily, we are able to bridge that gap as SLPs, but it can be difficult sometimes!

I am excited to be talking about this on today’s episode with my guest, Andi Putt.

Andi is a pediatric SLP who specializes in autism assessment and intervention. She’s passionate about early intervention and reducing stigmas around disabilities. Andi has worked in public schools and private practice for 12 years. 



In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why it's important to have a mentor to bounce your ideas off of
  • A few at-home dos and don'ts to share with parents 
  • Activities to recommend to parents
  • Ideas for getting more parent involvement
  • Why you need to take into consideration the feelings of parents
  • The importance of being patient with parents
  • Advice for dealing with team members that don’t agree with you


I hope you take a lot of the advice and recommendations from this episode and apply it with the students and parents you work with!

Don’t forget about all of the resources I have for SLPs in my TpT shop! Visit www.shopspeechtimefun.com for quick therapy ideas to keep your students motivated and engaged.
