Telepractice Treatment Plans

COVID19 SAFETY

Telepractice is the application of telecommunications technology to the delivery of speech language therapy at a distance by linking clinician to client for assessment, intervention and/or consultation/counseling.

Lilia Newman has been implementing Telepractice since 2018 into her practice. During COVID-19, Telepractice was the only safe way to continue providing services while containing the spread of the virus.

Remote sessions will always be available and the digital resources will continue to get better in the next years. At Communicate Better, we are committed in combining very naturalistic ways of interacting in combination with interesting digital books, games and videos.

Amazing Progress boosting my Child's Confidence

We’re so grateful to have Lilia as Pedro’s Speech Therapist, she was thoughtful and caring and easily shifted between different languages to adapt to our son’s needs which was a huge differentiator for our family (we mainly speak Portuguese and Spanish at home). Pedro made amazing progress in terms of speech and also boosted his confidence in Pre-K. Thanks Lilia for your support, we found an exclusive gem in Brooklyn that exactly fits our needs.

Play Therapy for ASD

Lilia provided language therapy to my son who was recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We were really concerned with his pragmatic skills and not too much with his language. He was always playing by himself and had a hard time to socialize with his peers in school. We asked Lilia to focus on play and very soon he was more social, he had these amazing ideas and started making new friends. His teachers also noticed the progress and now he is even able to play better with his siblings. Thanks Lilia for your dedication with my son.

Quick Fix

We took our 5 year old daughter to see Lilia because when she spoke Portuguese she was switching the "R" for "L". I think we might have had 10 sessions with Lilia to correct the issue. She was incredibly kind, attentive and great with my kid! My daughter loved going to see her and have fun memories of the sessions

Fun and Focused Speech Therapy

Lilia was warm, loving, and so wonderful guiding my 6 year old daughter through speech therapy. Lilia intently focused on my daughter’s speech needs through fun but focused speech games. Furthermore, Lilia assisted us in implementing home speech exercises which built on to her lesson. Because of Lilia, my daughter no longer has speech impediments. We are grateful for everything she did for us

Falar de Lília e do trabalho que ela tem desenvolvido com meu filho é algo muito gratificante. My son nasceu no Brasil e veio para os EUA aos 5 anos. Posso ver a melhora de vocabulário e o gosto de continuar aprendendo e falando português. Tenho a Lília tambem como um grande apoio sempre me incentivando e criando um ambiente super amigável e muito alegre nos atendimentos para comigo e meu filho. Me sinto privilegiada e abençoada por ter Lilia Newman no processo de evolução do meu filho
