Wondering how you can get parents more involved when it comes to screen time for their child?

You’re not alone! In fact, a lot of SLPs struggle with that. So in this episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I’m chatting with Jeanelle Canelo who is here to share some tips to get parents more involved with their children during screen time.
